That Supplement May Not Always Help You
SGH Doctor on New Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery
Patients should seek help if there is obvious pain for their bunions as minimally invasive surgery (MIS) can be done only for mild to moderately painful bunions. According to Dr Kevin Koo, Consultant, Dept of Orthopaedic Surgery, by the time bunions become severe, only open surgery can fix them.
In the MIS method, tiny incisions are made near the big toe so that bone-cutting instruments can be inserted to correct the deformity. Patients can walk immediately after surgery but will have to be on post-surgery slippers for six weeks. SGH patient, Koh Wei Qi was also interviewed following her experience with the MIS surgery.
