Same Day, Almost Painless Foot Surgery in Green Bay, Wisconsin
Have you been living with the pain of bunions and avoiding surgery because of the discomfort and long recovery time? Foot surgery techniques have advanced and getting bunion treatment in at Northwest Surgery Center located in Milwaukee could be quicker and less painful than a trip to the dentist.
You’re in good hands when you choose our clinic for your bunion surgery. The resident surgeon has more than 30-years experience in treating people’s feet. Most patients can walk out of the operation, drive themselves back home to Green Bay, and return to work the next day.
What is a Minimally Invasive Surgery Procedure?
Bunion treatment at Northwest Surgery Center uses what is known as minimally invasive bunion surgery. The procedure is designed to be fast, efficient, and almost pain-free.
During the operation, a small incision will be made in your foot near the bunion’s location. This opening provides access for the precision surgical tools used to remove the bunions.
There is no need for the patient to go under general anesthesia. A local anesthetic ensures the patient is comfortable, awake, and alert throughout the entire surgery.
When the procedure is complete, a small bandage is all that is needed to cover up the wound. A post-operative shoe is worn for about a week after bunion surgery, to protect the area while it heals.
The whole operation is over and done within a matter of 90-minutes or less, and you will be able to walk to your car under your own steam and drive yourself back to Green Bay. You don’t need to inconvenience any friends or family to look after you while you recover.
Do You Need Bunion Surgery?
If you have had bunions for some time, then they will be easy to spot. However, early treatment is preferable, so here’s how to know if you have the beginning stages of a bunion.
If you have a blister on the side of your foot, take a closer look because it may be a bunion. Other signs include:
- A bony bump at the first big toe joint
- An inward turning big toe putting pressure on the other toes
- Pain in the joint which becomes worse when wearing footwear.
Untreated bunions can develop into other painful conditions such as corns, calluses, and hammertoe. If you’re in Green Bay, you can get in touch with Northwest Surgery Center today and book a free consultation.
