One of the biggest concerns people have about bunion surgery is the recovery period. Traditional bunion surgeries typically leave the patient incapable of walking for an extended period of time and can cause a significant amount of discomfort. This can be a real issue for people who can’t take large amounts of time off from their busy schedules.
Bunion specialist Dr. Neal Blitz has developed an approach to bunion surgery that allows the patient to walk immediately following the conclusion of the procedure. Dr. Blitz developed the Lapidus bunionectomy, a procedure that uses a unique surgical approach to bunion surgery and utilizes a specialized shoe during the healing process.
The procedure is is less intense on the body tissues than the traditional approach, and the shoe helps to keep the bones of the foot stable during healing.
