- Bunion Basics
- For Doctors
Foot is created for its principal purpose of walking function, not for show. Bunion deformity compromises not only its look but mainly the biomechanics of foot for walking. Albeit by different techniques, the mission of all bunion surgeries is undivided for the restoration of normal foot function. The non-bone-breaking syndesmosis procedure has been proven by verifiable plantar-pressure function-scan study that the biomechanics of foot can again exert walking forces in right places under the foot and thus the consistent disappearance of abnormal plantar calluses.
