Welcome to our latest post from the Bunion Surgery Clinic. Today, we’re shedding light on some of the key aspects of bunion surgery – the cost, the recovery time, and different types of procedures available. This blog is specially prepared for you by our experienced surgeon, Dr Ken Jin, who has been instrumental in offering keyhole bunion surgery and minimally invasive bunion surgery in Singapore.
Bunions, medically known as ‘Hallux Valgus’, are bony protrusions at the base of the big toe, causing the toe to deviate towards the other toes. They can cause discomfort and, in severe cases, hamper mobility. But fear not, modern medicine offers various options for bunion correction, including non-surgical treatments and various types of bunion surgeries.
Bunion Surgery Cost
The expense associated with bunion surgery fluctuates widely, influenced by variables like the bunion’s complexity and the preferred surgical method. It’s always recommended to reach out directly to the clinic for the most precise approximation.
Types of Bunion Surgery
There are several types of bunion surgery, each tailored to treat different severity levels of the condition.
- Osteotomy: This involves cutting and realigning the bones in your foot.
- Arthrodesis: In this procedure, the arthritic joint surfaces are removed, and the bones are fixed together with screws or plates to allow them to heal.
- Resection Arthroplasty: Here, the damaged portion of the joint is removed, creating a flexible “scar” joint.
- Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery: This approach involves making small incisions and using specialized instruments to correct the deformity. This includes the keyhole bunion surgery, a popular option due to its shorter recovery time and less post-operative pain.
- Guidance Jig System: Dr Ken Jin is the first and currently the only surgeon in Singapore utilizing the latest guidance jig system for bunion surgery. This technique allows for more precise and accurate alignment during the procedure, ensuring optimal patient outcomes.
Bunion Surgery Recovery & Recovery Time
Recovering from bunion surgery is a process that requires time and patience. Bunion foot surgery recovery time can range from 6 weeks to 6 months, depending on the type of surgery performed and the individual’s overall health. However, the average bunion surgery recovery time is about 12 weeks. During this period, keeping weight off your foot and ensuring it is adequately rested and elevated is essential.
In minimally invasive procedures such as keyhole bunion surgery, the recovery time is often significantly shorter and less painful. These procedures also lead to less post-operative stiffness and a better cosmetic outcome.
