CARMEL, IN, October 27, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- You spent countless hours following all non-surgical advice to treat a pesky bunion, including wide-toed shoes, orthotics and anti-inflammatory medication. And these conservative treatments aren't doing the trick, so it might be time to look at a more effective treatment option-minimal incision bunion surgery. Go to Dr. Jeffrey Agricola, podiatrist in Indianapolis, IN, for this treatment.
A bunion-an enlargement on the base of a big toe's joint-starts to worsen when there is excessive use of the first metatarsal joint and over-pronation of the foot. Without treatment, the discomfort will turn into pain, and it will hinder your routine. In the Indianapolis area, bunion surgery with minimal incision is easier and more convenient for patients.
"When other non-surgical treatments don't work, it's time for you to visit us and discuss a surgical treatment, such as our minimal incision bunion surgery. If you ignore it, the bunion will get worse and make it more difficult to get around," said Dr. Agricola, Indianapolis, IN, podiatrist.
So, what is minimal incision bunion surgery, and why is it different from any other bunion surgery? It's the latest bunion procedure, and it stands apart from traditional surgery because it damages less tissue near the bunion. By using advanced surgical equipment and techniques, Dr. Arigocla creates a small incision to gain access to the bone to remove the bunion. Less tissue damage is important because it allows for a quicker healing process. For traditional bunion surgery, the healing time is longer and patients need to be extra careful about putting any pressure on the treated foot.
"With minimal incision, most patients can apply weight on their foot right after the procedure. In just a matter of weeks, patients find themselves using their regular shoes and getting back to the activities they love," said Dr. Agricola.
This procedure focuses more on minor bunions, and severe cases need to be evaluated before Dr. Agricola can suggest treatment options. A minimal incision bunion surgery can take care of the problem now, before letting the bunion get worse and more painful. Patients need to visit Dr. Agricola's practice, Prestige Podiatry, to discuss the best treatment for their feet.
