CrossRoads® Extremity Systems, LLC Announces Launch Of The DynaBunion™ 4D Minimal-Incision Lapidus System For Bunion Corrections
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CrossRoads Extremity Systems® is proud to announce the launch of its 4-D minimally-invasive DynaBunion™ Lapidus System for surgical bunion repair. This system enables surgeons to restore normal foot anatomy by realigning...
Over the last decade, minimally-invasive (MIS) foot surgery has been a hot topic among surgeons and patients due to the promise of faster patient recovery and less pain. Many patients are concerned about scheduling traditional foot surgery because they cannot afford to be off their feet. They feel a long recovery time is impossible due to family and work responsibilities.
Traditionally, bunion surgery has a long recovery time - about six to eight weeks, including a few weeks in a surgical boot. Newer, minimally invasive procedures (such as miniBunion) can have you back on your feet in a matter of days.
CrossRoads® Extremity Systems announces the launch of miniBunion™, a minimally-invasive technique and system to repair painful bunions.
Bob Baravarian, DPM, Santa Monica, CA, shares, “The miniBunion technique allows for a 3D realignment of the bone. Our miniBunion patients have better mobility in the joint and report a faster return to regular activity.”
Lead Design Surgeon for miniBunion, Bradley Lamm, DPM: “Bunion surgery can now be performed with a revolutionary technique through a small incision, which provides stability and allows for an active immediate weight-bearing recovery.”
David Yeager, DPM, Morrison, IL, shares, "I incorporated the miniBunion procedure into my surgical practice since it's a reproducible bunion surgery that has great fixation and enables patients to get back to regular activities faster with less scarring and greater...
With the miniBunion technique, incisions are two to four times smaller than a standard technique and involve less trauma to the soft tissues surrounding the toes. The incision is on the inner side of the foot, resulting in a scar that is virtually invisible.
April 9, 2020 - Minimally-invasive techniques spare the blood supply to the bones and allow less pain and swelling, a smaller scar and faster recovery than open bunion surgeries.
Discussing miniBunion, Bob Baravarian, DPM, Santa Monica, CA, tells Podiatry Today, “Patients love the lack of scar tissue, the small incision, the lack of swelling and rapid healing. I also prefer the lack of post-operative care necessary in comparison to open...
