Bunion surgery
is something not to take lightly.  Bunions can be very painful, and they can be hard to treat.  This is a structural problem with the first metatarsal and related joints.  It is a condition that is often genetic and at the foot type that is prone to bunions is inherited.  So, some individuals will have bunions at a very early age, and we call this a juvenile onset bunion.  These tend to progress much quicker than those that develop later in life.  Again, it's common to have other family members with bunions because of the common foot structure that is prone to this.
Bunion surgery should be done to realign the joint in such a way that the first metatarsal is back in the best functional position and also so that the bunion will not recur.  We have developed the Washington bunion Center at our clinic.  Over the years I have personally treated hundreds of patients with bunion surgery.  This has allowed years of experience.  It is critical to know both what the best procedure is and the best surgical technique to apply to particular individual.  A milder to moderate bunion will get a different procedure than a patient who has a severe bunion or a bunion that appears early in life such as a juvenile onset bunion.
With these years of experience and perfecting techniques we can get people back to weightbearing as early as possible.  Also, I have developed multiple ways to enhance and speed up bone healing.  There are number of different technologies that a utilized to do this.  I like to use our bodies own bone-graft material to augment bone healing sites and fusion sites.  Postoperative care is provided by Dr. Young and his team.  The staff at our clinic had years of experience helping with the postoperative care to get you back on your feet and quickly recover from your surgery.
Before surgery Dr. Young will review what steps need to be taken to plan on the smooth process for your surgery.  This includes preoperative planning, prescription medications needed for surgery, reviewing your consents sent and planning after surgery (postoperative care).  Our goal is to have fully prepared to make the procedure process as smooth as possible and to expose.  Postoperative healing.
