TRADITIONAL BUNION SURGERY VS. OUR AMI-BUNION™ MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY
See why our results are superior and our procedure is True Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery:
Traditional Bunion Surgery - Pain for up to two months (varies from one person to another)
AMI-BUNION™ Minimally Invasive Procedure - TREMENDOUS REDUCTION IN POST-OPERATIVE PAIN - Because of the nature and the minimal approach of this surgery the pain is at its minimal.
Traditional Bunion Surgery - The traditional method leaves behind a 4-5cmm / 1-2 inches scar which can be quite unattractive and at times painful.
AMI-BUNION™ Minimally Invasive Procedure - MINIMAL INCISION - 5mm incision on the side of the big toe.
Traditional Bunion Surgery - This is different than scars on the skin. Scar tissue is the number one cause of prolong pain and limited range of motion on the big toe joint. This is due to dissection when performing bunion surgery.
AMI-BUNION™ Minimally Invasive Procedure - ZERO TO NO SCAR TISSUE - The dissection is so minimal that in almost all cases had no scar tissue build up.
RANGE OF MOTION
Traditional Bunion Surgery - DECREASED RANGE OF MOTION - (of the big toe joint, 1st metatarsophalangeal joint) - Post-surgery, because of required dissection in this area when doing a traditional bunion surgery.
AMI-BUNION™ Minimally Invasive Procedure - (of the big toe) - Most patients do not lose any range of motion after this surgery.
Traditional Bunion Surgery - One of the biggest problems with foot surgery. The foot is the last stop in the body so the swelling has no place else to go but stay in the foot.
The more swelling you have the more pain and the longer it take for patients to go back to regular shoes, go back to work, and so on...
AMI-BUNION™ Minimally Invasive Procedure - ZERO TO NO SWELLING - This procedure is so minimal that the swelling is not noticeable. Minimal swelling means minimal pain and that leads to patients going back to regular shoes as fast as 2 to 4 weeks (compared to the traditional method of 3 months).
Traditional Bunion Surgery - longer recovery time and the scar tissue requires patients to go to physical therapy to get the range of motion back (kind of like rehab after a total knee replacement).
AMI-BUNION™ Minimally Invasive Procedure - Mobility - almost all patients are walking without crutches, some of our patients have gone back to work as little as one week.
TESTED & PROVEN - This new method has been researched and there is a documented study out of Italy that followed 140 patients for a total of 6 years; the results were amazing.
