Many people struggle with debilitating foot pain much longer than they need to because they fear the unknown of a surgical procedure and recovery. While this feeling is totally understandable, Dr. Alireza Khosroabadi and his team at Khosroabadi Institute encourage anyone dealing with a troublesome foot or ankle issue that diminishes their quality of life to reconsider an advanced surgical solution.
Whether it’s a bunion, Tailor’s bunion (bunionette), hammertoe, brachymetatarsia (short toe syndrome), or some other type of foot or ankle problem, Dr. K. has developed and perfected specialized methods that pave the way for minimal recovery time for foot surgery—especially when compared to more traditional procedures. Let’s take a closer look at just a few options for various conditions that help people get back on their feet in no time.
Minimal Recovery Time for Foot Surgeries in California
If you’ve tried various conventional non-invasive remedies for your foot issues but still can’t get any relief from constant pain, especially while wearing shoes or standing for long periods. Depending on the severity of your condition, most of the following are outpatient procedures that have you moving about more freely in just a few weeks.
AMI-BUNION®: Minimal Recovery Time for Bunion CorrectionAMI-BUNION® is an outpatient procedure, so you can go home the same day. Dr. K. makes a small incision to relocate the big toe bone and realign the joint, tendons, and ligaments. Most patients are able to walk without crutches after the procedure. Traditional bunion removal surgeries can take up to three months to heal. Overall recovery time is two-to-four weeks. Here’s one patient’s testimonial about the success of her surgery.
AMI-BUNIONETTE™: Resolving the Tiny Toe Bunion Quickly
AMI-BUNIONETTE™ is a process to correct Tailor’s bunion, which affects the little toe. This is also an outpatient procedure. Dr. K. makes a tiny incision to remove the bony bump, smooth the bone edges, and fix the alignment of the bone inside the foot. You’ll quickly recover and experience minimal—if any—swelling, pain, and scarring.
AMI-HAMMERTOE™: Minimally-Invasive Hammertoe Cure
AMI-HAMMERTOE™ is an advanced procedure that corrects more severe cases of hammer toes. While mild hammer toe issues can often be resolved without surgery, more complex conditions benefit from Dr. K.’s approach: an outpatient procedure to fix tendons, remove small bits of bone, and straighten the toes. Most people begin walking normally after just a few weeks.
Brachymetatarsia (Short Toe) Surgery: Toe-Lengthening Done Right
Dr. K.’s specialized brachymetatarsia surgery alleviates the pain caused by short toes in one of two ways:
- External fixator. After a brief outpatient procedure, this device gradually lengthens the toe for approximately four–to–six weeks. Patients are able to move around and stand by using crutches right away, if necessary.
- One-stage bone graft lengthening. In one surgical session, Dr. K. cuts the short toe in half and inserts a bone graft, eventually joining the two segments into one healthy bone in just a few weeks.
