Minimally Invasive (MIS) Bunion Surgery Instead of a large incision on the foot, very small incisions are made coupled with the use with x-ray. The bone is cut, shifted over, and fixated with 2 screws. Due to the strength of these 2 screws, you will be able to walk after surgery. This minimally invasive approach allows for less pain and swelling after surgery compared to traditional bunion surgery. There may be additional necessary procedures to achieve full correction of the bunion that our podiatrists will discuss with you.
