Mini TightRope Bunionectomy
A bunionectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the bony bump on the inner side of the foot at the base of your big toe. Traditionally, a bunionectomy involves breaking or cutting the bone (osteotomy), resetting it in the correct position and using a screw or pin for fixation. The Mini TightRope bunionectomy is a less invasive surgical procedure to correct painful foot deformities caused by bunions. The Mini TightRope method uses a strong non-absorbable fiberwire suture to bind the first and second metatarsals together without cutting bone or using bone screws.
