Why was the Bunionplasty® developed?

by Dr. Neal Blitz

When you created the bunionplasty® procedure was it the result of a personal issue or an overall need you saw in your patients?  

In my Manhattan bunion surgery practice, I saw need for both a cosmetic and medical approach for a bunion surgery.  As much as my patients wanted the bunion gone, they also wanted minimal scarring.  I developed the bunionplasty® procedure as a technique to repair the bunion and provide an aesthetic outcome.  The incision is place more on the inside of the foot, and with the use of a medical implant that I developed (Contours Lapidus Plating System), I am able to mobilize patients immediately after the surgery without the need for casting and crutches.
