Dr. Moy's Bunion Removal Surgery

Bunion Removal (Bunion Treatment) 

Bunions are painful bone protrusions, commonly caused by wearing shoes that are too tight. They typically form on the inside edge of the big toe at the first metatarsal joint. If left untreated, bunions can cause major foot problems. The movement of the big toe can cause the second toe to shift as well, deforming the foot in the process. Red, calloused skin may also be present at the site of the bunion. Fortunately, there are a number of conventional and surgical options available to alleviate the symptoms or completely remove bunions.

Conventional Bunion Treatment

One of the easiest ways to treat bunions is to wear more comfortable shoes. Bunions develop when the deep toe box is too narrow, effectively pinching the toes. If you have a bunion, you should switch to shoes with roomier deep toe boxes, low or flat heels, and adequate arch support. Custom orthotics, such as bunion pads or insoles, can be worn inside the shoes to relieve the pressure on the big toe by distributing your weight better. A trained podiatrist like Dr. Moy can recommend the best orthotic for you.

Mole skin or felt patches can be worn over the bunion to prevent it from rubbing on the inside of your shoes. The pain can also be managed using over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medicines like ibuprofen or aspirin. Dr. Moy can let you know which pain reliever is best suited for you. Ice packs can also be used to help reduce swelling. Ice should be kept in a cloth or towel and applied for 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Your foot should be elevated during application.

Dr. Moy’s Pain Free Bunion Removal

After years of performing bunion removal, Dr. Moy has developed a technique that is pain free in 97% of his patients. Bunion removal is an extremely complex procedure. Traditional methods of bunion removal often result in a lengthy, debilitating recover y process. Because a bunion is composed of both bone and soft tissue, bunion removal requires a delicate touch in order to achieve optimum results. Dr. Moy has honed his method after practicing podiatric medicine for more than two decades.

The results speak for themselves. An overwhelming majority of his patients report no pain at all following their bunion removal. Dr. Moy performs his bunion removal surgery using both general anesthesia and a local aesthetic on the patient. Once the local anesthetic wears off, almost all of Dr. Moy’s patients report a complete absence of pain. Narcotic pain medication is never given, although anti-inflammatory medicine may be used to reduce inflammation. After having their bunions removed, patients of Dr. Moy can return to their lives pain free.

It's been almost 9 months now after having bunion surgery last November 9th & December 28th on left/right feet. I love my "new feet." I am so grateful to all of you for your skills, talents and providing excellent care during my time in CA. I will never forget you and all you did for me. "Cute" shoe shopping is so much fun! I check out your website periodically just to see what new things you have added. Thanks again. You're the best!

I have enjoyed outstanding results with the bunion removal and toe-straightening surgeries you performed on both my feet. Like most of your patients, I experienced no post-op pain. I enjoyed a remarkably trouble-free recovery, allowing me to resume my desk-based work immediately and other normal life activities very quickly. I know that my excellent results and recovery — in stark contrast to the pain and inconvenience notoriously associated with bunion surgery — were due to your exceptional technique and finesse.
