Minimal Incision Bunionectomy

A minimally invasive (MIS) bunionectomy is a surgical procedure for correcting a bunion deformity with minimal disruption to surrounding tissues. Performed under local anesthesia, this procedure involves carefully removing excess bone and realigning the affected joint to correct the bunion. Specialized instruments, such as burrs, rasps, or saws, are used to trim and reshape the bone, allowing for precise correction while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.

Arthroplasty (Hammer Toes)

Arthroplasty is a procedure commonly used to treat various joint disorders, including severe cases of Hammer toes or arthritis affecting toe joints. It involves the partial or total removal of the damaged joint. The affected joint is prepared by removing any bone spurs and damaged cartilage, the joint is then partially removed using saws and bone cutters and closed with sutures. Like following a cheilectomy, Arthroplasty procedures are associated with pain relief, improved joint function, and enhanced quality of life.

Cheilectomy 

A cheilectomy is a procedure performed to alleviate pain and improve joint function in individuals suffering from hallux rigidus, a condition characterized by stiffness and arthritis in the big toe joint. This procedure involves the surgeon carefully removing any bone spurs, excess tissue, or damaged cartilage that may be causing impingement and limiting movement in the joint. Cheilectomy procedures are associated with several benefits, including reduced pain, improved range of motion, and enhanced joint function.

The Process:

Referrals are preferred though not required for a consultation with Allen. Referrals can be made following an appointment with our team of chiropodists, or by a member of the potential patient health team.


Unlike traditional podiatric surgery, minimally invasive surgery boasts significantly reduced recovery time, including decreased post-operative pain, swelling, infections, and complications. 


All procedures are done under local anesthetic without the need for general anesthesia. Patients return to regular activities in as little as 6-8 weeks following the procedure. 


Allen's services are available to new and returning patients alike, please contact us with any questions or inquiries relating to podiatric bone surgery.
