Syndesmosis procedure is an evidence-based bunion surgery that has successfully broken with the bone-breaking tradition. It has been able to conquer not just one but all the 4 most critical challenges in bunion surgery. They are:
1. Bunion can be consistently corrected without breaking bones at all.
2. Mild to severe degree bunions can all be corrected with one single technique.
3. Normal biomechanical function of the foot for walking can be restored, consistently.
4. Long-term bunion recurrence can be prevented, effectively and consistently.
The real purpose for bunion surgery is to help bunion feet return
to unrestricted activities and shoes without pain or recurrence.
