Why fight through bunion pain when you can fight back with a PROstep™ minimally invasive procedure?

One of the most common foot problems patients face is a bunion, which is a misalignment of the bone at the big toe. Bunions are often painful and can drastically change the shape of your foot, limiting your daily activities. If you have been putting off surgery, it’s time to find a PROstep™ trained surgeon and take back your life.

Surgeons have found the following advantages of PROstep™ minimally invasive procedures:

  • Less pain2
  • Earlier return to function compared to an open procedure2,3
  • Smaller incision1
  • Less soft tissue disruption1
  • Smaller scars1

Individual results and activity levels after surgery vary and depend on many factors including age, weight and prior activity level. There are risks and recovery times associated with surgery and there are certain individuals who should not undergo surgery. Ask your doctor if foot surgery is right for you.
