Soft Tissue Growth and Bunions.

Bunion xray

Dr. Timothy Young Talks About Ganglion Cyst Developing Over a Bunion. 

This is not uncommon. In addition to a typical bunion it is possible to have a superimposed fluid filled sac. This could either be a ganglion cyst or a bursa sac.  During surgery, if the ganglion cyst or bursa sack is removed without addressing the underlying structure bunion problem, then there is a high likelihood of recurrence of the problem. The ganglion cyst can come back again, because the underlying capsule needs repairing along with the bunion that caused the problem. 

If you are concerned about a possible ganglion cyst or a soft tissue growth on top of your bunion and would like to discuss this, please contact myself Dr. Timothy Young or my partner Dr. Brandon Nelson. We both work at Foot Surgical Center of Issaquah. This serves the Greater Seattle Area, including Bellevue Issaquah and Redmond.

Give us a call at 425-391-8666 or make an appointment online today. Our Issaquah Podiatrists would be happy to see you!

Recent Developments in Bunion Surgery

buniontreatments

Bunion surgery continues to evolve and techniques continue to change. Recently there has been a lot of talk about the Lapiplasty technique. The Lapiplasty technique is used for large bunions or people with hypermobile foot structures. The procedure basically involves the use of a jig. The surgeon aligns the jig on the foot in the correct orientation.

The cuts to correct the bunion are then performed and then the joint is compressed. Once controlled compression is achieved the joint is fixated in multiple planes. The Lapiplasty technique is a highly effective tool that can make bunion correction easier. Issaquah Foot & Ankle Specialists have been performing Lapidus procedures for more than 20 years. If you have a bunion and would like to be evaluated give us a call at 425-391-8666 or make an appointment online. We have an onsite surgical suite to save you time and money.
