Minimally Invasive (keyhole) Bunion Surgery

Minimally Invasive (keyhole) Bunion Surgery at Ashtead Hospital

What are bunions?

Bunions have caused pain in feet since feet themselves existed! They are also known as hallux valgus or a bony bump on the outside of the big toe. They affect women more than men and can present at any age. They are the result of the big toe or great toe moving towards the outside of the foot or laterally. At the same time the main long bone of the foot known as the first metatarsal moves inwards towards the inside of the foot. The end of this bone or head as it is scientifically known starts to put pressure on the skin from the inside and this in turn rubs on shoes from the outside. Overall the skin can become red and thickened and in response to the rubbing and unfortunately very painful.
