Bunions come in a variety of shapes and sizes. This has to do with the unique environment and factors that each individual bunion forms under and is formed by. Different bunion types require different surgical approaches.
If you have a mild to moderate-sized bunion, the Austin bunionectomy is your ideal choice. This is because an Austin bunionectomy is limited in the amount of correction it can provide. While some surgeons may treat larger bunions using an Austin bunionectomy, bunion expert Dr. Neal Blitz does not recommend this approach. Larger bunions are best treated with a Lapidus bunionectomy.
If you are in need of surgical care for your moderate or large bunion, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Blitz. He can recommend the correct procedure for addressing your bunion.
