Clip on new bunion surgery CBC Canada? No pins!

Posted , 7 users are following.

Have just seen a clip on CBC NEWS Canada (a DR Lamb?) Who performs keyhole surgery on BUNIONS WITHOUT pins. They say it's performed in ASIA AND Europe. Has anyone heard of this in Oz? THESE PEOPLE ARE BACK AT WORK WITHIN A WEEK!! Have been waiting for this type of surgery to avoid pins?

    I did read about people who had this kind of procedure and their bunion returned almost immediately because of the soft tissue. I guess it depends on how long you've had bunions and how severe they are. I'd rather have the screws (which I do) than go through surgery again.

    thanks for that! Can those screws eventually be taken out?

    tried to find the clip but couldn't, do you have a link?

    There is now surgery with dissolveable Magnesium screws that I would have investigated had I heard about it in time!
