本人習練中西方武術至今已二十年, 一直以來都沒察覺自己雙足會有功能問題, 直到幾年前在武術上進入高階程度, 需要作大量單腿支撐身體的動作時發覺很困難, 亦做得比其他同期的同學差. 於是乎我便加緊練習, 不久本人的左邊膝蓋出現了疼痛, 走路時腳步不穩, 同時, 一直不以為然的足部變形變得明顯了 ----- 顯然, 本人有姆趾外翻的問題.
經過一段時間在網上搜集資料, 得知病情嚴重是必須做手術的, 而有一種手術是不用截骨 ----- 就是吳醫生的韌帶聯合術. 於是便找吳醫生徵詢意見, 安排手術.
今天已是手術後的兩年, 本人每周從事體育活動四至五天, 膝關節痛不見了, 很多從前做得不好的動作今天都應付自如, 更考獲體適能私人教練牌照, 足以證明吳醫生的手術相當成功!! 真的很感謝吳醫生哩!!
The surgery I chose is non bone cutting/breaking. In Australia, the practice is to cut or break the bones in some way. My Grandmother and my girlfriend did have this surgery and it was not successful for them. So when I heard about Dr Wu and his Syndesmosis Procedure, I jumped at it. I will not attempt to explain it, so I suggest you follow that link to his website which explains not only the procedure but also the condition which we refer to as bunions... (更多)
My Feet, Pre Bunion Surgery 2012
#1st month after surgery 2012
#2nd month after surgery, 2012
"Hi All, I'm a patient of Dr. Wu's Bunion Centre. I am a figure skating coach and i had my
bunion problem for 2 years since i start teaching long hours. In late 2009, i couldn't teach anymore
because the pain irritates me badly.so i decided to do a surgery. Otherwise, my career would just ended.
I did a lot of research on the internet.... I found this bunion centre. I tempted to go for a try by it said " non- bone breaking ". As a sportsman, i have to consider the best of myself to lower the physical harm. I trusted this surgery could make me continue the sport. And Ya, It did!!
I had my Syndesmosis Procedure surgery a year ago. I'm totally recovered and back on the ice again after 6 months recovery. I'm thankful to have Dr. Wu repaired my feet and make my skating career continue. I just want to drop a message and a video to let you all know. It's really worth and i know this is the best way to help for the bunion problem. My feet are functioning very well now or even better than before.
* This video recorded 1 year after my surgery* Enjoy!!!"
Following my surgery last year I have been training hard to get back into shape for fencing - the photo
shows my husband & I at the Commonwealth Veterans Fencing Championships in Singapore earlier this month - I
was successful in being selected for the England Ladies team, winning a silver medal! I am so thrilled to be
able to compete at this level again, which would not have been possible without Dr Wu's amazing surgery
Dear Dr. Wu,
Since 2004, for every steps of my life, I am grateful to you!
It is now 2010 and I want to show you I am a living proof of your miraculous operation.
Yes, I could have danced all night, until the 12th of Never, and that is a long long time…..
Thanks a million!
Your patient and fan,
The Globe Trotter (Literally with my perfect feet!)
至2008年尾，參加過由吳醫生主持的拇指外翻講座後，明白到此病症大多是遺傳因素所引起，而穿高跟鞋亦祗會加速病情; 剛巧妹妹及媽媽都有同樣的病症，只時病情惡化進度有所不同；事實上妹妹從不穿高跟鞋和尖頭鞋, 只穿平底鞋。
有見及此，我於今年2月初，採用吳醫生之"韌帶聯合術"，現手術後已經6個多月，外觀明顯改善了，厚繭也完全消失，腳趾功能亦慢慢回復。至現在為止，本人對 "韌帶聯合術" 可謂是無疑地推薦予各拇指外翻人士。
I wanted to keep you posted on the condition of my feet after the bunion operation in Hong Kong, as I have
been so pleased with the results. We have been living in Syndey for six months now and it is over a year since
the plaster was removed from my feet. M feet not only look great but are feeling great. I have no foot pain and
do a lot of walking. I am careful to wear good shoes with the orthotics which were fitted in Hong Kong. I have
not been able to find where I can have a foot scan. I would like to do so to send you the results for your
records. It is over a year since I had the surgery, I am sure you will also be pleased with the results after
this period of time. The 2nd and 3rd toes are starting to suit more flat. Previously they always had a
"hammerhead" look to them, very raised at the joints.
I will always appreciate having this surgery done while I was in Hong Kong. I know I would not have had the invasive surgery they do for bunions, here in Australia. I hope your work can become known in other places where they still break and pin bones to fix bunions. I feel you have done groundbreaking work in developing this surgery and wish you well with future results. I will send some pictures soon and try to get a foot scan done.
Dr. Wu's procedure was a walk in the park compared to what I went through having my previous operation. Dr. Wu is a very caring doctor and explained to me what was involved. He told me a tendon will grow in your foot and your bunion will be straightened out. He said he would not need to break it to straighten it. It is amazing! I do not have any callous on my feet and my feet are straight now. I highly recommend Dr. Wu and have the greatest respect and admiration for his invention.
My bunion feet have always prohibited me from selecting beautiful and fashionable shoes. I really did not dare to try the long recovering and painful, bone-breaking bunion surgery. Fortunately, with the recommendation by one of my doctor friends, I met with Dr. Wu and I underwent his non-bone-breaking syndesmosis procedure. After 4 months, my normal feet were restored without pain. My feet improved not only in look, but also function. If you can manage to walk a little less for 3 months, I would strongly recommend you to Dr. Wu's bunion surgery.
Seventeen months have passed since my "Special Dr Wu bunion surgery" in June 2008. During this time I have resumed life in Australia, and my feet have slowly but steadily improved. I could not wear shoes comfortably for about 10 months...but now...everything is great. I can walk for over an hour and I can wear high heels as long as I'm not "on my feet" for too long. Best of all though, my feet are no longer ugly I will always be grateful to you for "giving me my feet back" Dr. Wu.
Before receiving the Osteotomy Procedure in 2003, I visited quite a number of specialists but I was not aware of any other approaches other than the break-and-shift technique. If I had been aware of Dr. Wu's Syndesmosis Procedure before my first surgery, I am sure I would have used this non-destructive approach. I would advise those who have decided to take the surgery to consider the Syndesmosis Approach, especially for those who have got hallux valgus on both feet and have decided to receive surgery simultaneously.
In 2005 I learnt about Dr. Wu's bunion surgery in the newspaper. Dr. Wu brought hope to my daughter's foot bunion, which had bothered her since she was young. Dr. Wu not only renewed my daughter's feet cosmetically, but also restored her normal foot function and daily activities. Thanks again.
I am writing this letter to share my experience about Dr. Wu's syndesmosis procedure, 1.5 years after the
Dr. Wu's surgery on my left foot, compared with the bone-breaking surgery of my right foot 4 years ago, was definitely less painful and limited walking was allowed straight after surgery.
I have returned to my daily activities and my left knee problem has also been solved completely.
The calluses on my right foot still exist but on my left foot they have almost completely gone. Had I known about Dr. Wu's surgery at that time, I would have definitely selected the latter.
contact with our former patients for reference:
We have international patients living in Canada, USA, UK, Japan, Korea, China, Macau, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia and New Zealand who have travelled to Hong Kong for their bunion surgery and have kindly agreed to talk to their own country man about their experiences.
If you would like to have these references, please feel free to contact us in order to obtain their contact details
"I feel great with my feet, they are functioning very well. I am willing to be your reference, so you can give out my cell phone number in California…….I will share my experience with the callers."
"Regarding communicating with potential patients, it'll be my pleasure …… I'd be pleased to give them my favorable opinion."
"I'm doing very well and I'm so happy that I had the bunion surgery with your revolutionary procedure. Thank you again! I will be glad to speak to any interested parties about this surgery. Just contact me by email."
"I would be happy to provide a testimonial for you…… I am happy for you to forward my email address. I can then follow up contacts either by email or telephone at my own convenience."
"I would be happy to act as a reference for anyone considering the bunion surgery you do. I now have no foot pain at all and the cosmetic results are amazing. I am very happy with the results of the surgery. I tell people whenever I can about the advantages of this type of surgery. Unfortunately they seem to do only do the bone breaking surgery in Australia. I feel regret that people have to go through that, when there is a far better way to achieve the same results, with the non-bone breaking surgery. The sooner this surgery is known about and performed in more places, the better. I see many women my age with bunion problems who will not have the bone breaking surgery, because it is so invasive."
