Virtually Pain Free
No narcotic pain medication prescribed after local anesthesia wares off!
Dr. Moy's bunion surgery is 97% virtually pain free, as all our patients attest to. In fact, in most cases it is 100% painless. This is proven on our patients' written surveys. This is truly one of the most remarkable things regarding our bunion surgery, and the reason why patients are willing to fly from around the world to have Dr. Moy perform bunion surgery on them.
For some, his amazing accomplishments are hard to believe, and they have been fought with incredible skepticism, not only by patients, but by other medical professionals as well. However, the criticism has been met head on with irrefutable proof that this surgery is actually being performed virtually pain free.
How Is This Possible?
It has to do with Dr. Moy's creativity and his innate surgical skill. Skill is required to handle the tissue planes delicately and with precision in and around the great toe joint. The complexity in the anatomy of that area is high, and attention to detail critical. This precision is extremely difficult to master. The "Life Beyond Bunion" show provides proof to the virtually pain free process. We are truly committed to show every single surgery performed in this office, good, bad or indifferent, because 97% or more of our patients obtain remarkable results.
Bunion surgery has a historically reputation for being extremely painful and debilitating. Some drug companies are advertising free bunion surgery to patients, so that if a patient elects to have free bunion surgery, they must use that company’s narcotic pain medication to control their post-operative pain. Drug companies choose the bunion procedure because they know that this procedure is painful and they want to see how effective their narcotic pain medication is in controlling post-operative pain after bunion surgery.
Can You Believe It?
In addition to sedation, Dr. Moy's uses local anesthesia during the actual operation. Once the local anesthesia wears off, the patient has no pain and regains full sensation back to their foot. The patients are not given any narcotic pain medication. Most often they are given an anti-inflammatory so as to reduce the inflammation, but this is optional.
There are a lot of surgeons out there who are claiming their particular surgery is pain free. Maybe some are, but what they lack is proof that they have consistent outcomes of virtually painless foot surgery. We believe that one person stating that fact isn’t enough. There should be hundreds of people saying the same thing in order for it to be conceived as a fact. On this website, you will see a never-ending growth of information referring to virtually painless bunion surgery and year after year, we will continue to showcase ALL of our patient surveys to validate that statement.
