The Revolutionary Guidance Jig System:
Dr Ken Jin is not just the first but, currently, the only surgeon in Singapore who uses the guidance jig system for bunion surgery. This technique sets the bar high for surgical precision. It allows for incredibly accurate alignment during the procedure, which in turn leads to optimal patient outcomes. The guidance jig system represents a leap forward in bunion surgery, providing a level of precision previously unattainable.
Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery (MIS):
Minimally invasive procedures have been a game-changer in many fields of medicine, and bunion surgery is no exception. Dr Ken Jin specializes in MIS techniques, which entail smaller incisions and reduced scarring compared to traditional bunion surgery. The result? A quicker recovery period and less post-surgical discomfort. Our patients can get back to their everyday activities sooner and enjoy better results with less downtime.
Our commitment doesn’t stop at surgical techniques. It extends to every interaction we have with our patients. We take pride in creating a supportive and compassionate environment, helping patients navigate their journey towards bunion-free living with confidence and optimism.
We understand you may have many questions about bunion treatment and recovery. To help you, we’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions:
What are the symptoms of a bunion?
Bunions can cause discomfort, pain, and swelling on the side of your foot. This can make it difficult to walk or wear shoes. You might also notice your big toe deviating towards the other toes.
How long does the recovery from bunion surgery take?
Recovery can vary based on the type of surgery and individual patient factors. However, with minimally invasive bunion surgery, patients typically experience less downtime. Many patients return to normal activities within a few weeks, but full recovery can take several months.
Will the bunion return after surgery?
Modern surgical techniques like the guidance jig system significantly reduce the risk of recurrence. However, following all postoperative care instructions and maintaining proper foot health is essential to prevent a recurrence.
Is bunion surgery painful?
Modern anaesthesia and pain management techniques make the procedure as comfortable as possible. After surgery, any pain or discomfort is typically well controlled with medication.
What can I do to prevent bunions?
Maintaining good foot health can help prevent bunions. This includes wearing shoes with enough room for your toes and not wearing high heels too often. Regular exercise to keep your feet strong can also help.
