I have heard about “minimally invasive” and laser bunion surgery. What is your opinion?
If you are investigating bunion surgery, be aware that so-called “simple” or “minimal” surgical procedures are often inadequate “quick fixes” that can do more harm than good. Watch out for exaggerated claims that surgery can give you a “perfect” foot. The goal of surgery is to relieve as much pain, correct as much deformity as is realistically possible, and return the patient to full activity and normal shoe gear.
Contemporary bunion operations being marketed to consumers are numerous and not all claims are accurate. There is no such thing as laser surgery for bunions.
