Slocum-Dickson podiatrists now offer minimally invasive bunion surgery

Slocum-Dickson Medical Group’s podiatrists Kimberly Hurley and Christopher Powers are now conducting minimally invasive bunion surgery.

This innovative approach to correcting bunion deformities, provides faster recovery time, less pain and minimal scarring.

Bunions form at the joint of the base of the big toe. There are various ways to ease the pain from bunions, however, the most successful fix for painful bunions is surgical. Traditional bunion surgery involves a large incision and a lengthy recovery time. Minimally invasive bunion surgery requires tiny incisions and offers faster bone healing and a quicker return to activities.

“By offering minimally invasive bunion surgery, patients are returning to their normal lifestyle faster,” said Hurley. “They experience significantly less pain and recover much faster.”

“The smaller incisions in minimally invasive bunion surgery provides faster recovery and minimal scarring, all while improving patient mobility,” said Powers.
