Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy

Did you know? Approximately 150-200,000 bunion repairs are performed each year in the U.S.

Traditionally these surgical procedures involve an open joint invasive approach with shaving of the “bump” and an osteotomy (cut) in the metatarsal bone to reposition it into the corrected position. This and other minimally invasive surgery for bunion repair has been performed in various forms for many years. While the concept had promise the techniques utilized in the past were not up to par.

Dr. Graziano has been performing foot and ankle surgery for over 3 decades and thousands of bunionectomy procedures. He has expended a great deal of time and energy developing a brand new minimally invasive approach to bunion repair and the equipment necessary to perform it. He specifically designed and developed a template (Patent Pending) to make the procedure more precise and reproducible for those utilizing it. In other words Dr. Graziano’s chief goal was to take the guess work out of the procedure and produce a correction that was accurate, reproducible and stable.

Dr. Graziano’s minimally invasive procedure involves a 1 inch incision which does not interfere with the great toe joint. It is placed in a position that is virtually invisible to the patient. It is performed under local anesthesia with sedation in an outpatient setting.

The results of procedure are designed to be permanent therefore lasting the lifetime of the patient.
