Both Dr. Young and Dr. Nelson have years of experience doing bunion surgery and reconstruction. Dr. Young and Dr Nelson do 2-3 bunion surgeries every week.


Our staff are familiar with our postoperative protocols and how to help ideal care for our patients after surgery.

Both Dr. Young and Dr. Nelson work together on virtually all bunion surgeries, so you have an experienced expert team.


Know that Dr. Young and Dr. Nelson use specialize instruments to ensure that you have the best possible result. Some of these instruments are not available at the local hospitals. So when they do surgery at the hospitals they bring them with them, to make certain that you have the best possible equipment and supplies.  The same equipment and supplies are always available at Foot Surgical Center of Issaquah, the certified surgical suite directly adjacent to our clinic.


Foot Surgical Center of Issaquah is certified by The Joint Commission.  This is the same certifying board that hospitals use for their certification.


Know that you will will have anesthesia and you will be sedated by a CRNA (certified nurse anesthetist), you will virtually sleep through your surgery and you will not remember or feel anything.  When you do wake up, your foot will be numb from the local anesthetic that was administered by Dr. Young or Dr. Nelson while you were sleeping.


If you have any other questions regarding this type of surgery available through our clinic please contact our office or give us a call at 425-391-8666.
