We know that running is what keeps you fit, healthy and sane… and that after a while it becomes a compulsion. This is why we’re committed to helping our runner patients get back to running as quickly and safely as possible after foot surgery. The good news is that in most cases you’ll be able to resume running. The bad news is that recovery does take time and it will never be as fast as you want it to be. But love your body, take care of it while it heals, and you’ll be back on the trails, streets, or track before you know it.

Bunions often develop slowly and many people put off treatment until their bunion either causes them pain or their deformity becomes so large it prevents them from wearing normal shoes. Like most medical conditions, bunions are easily managed when diagnosed in an early stage, when treatment can be less invasive. However, in some cases, when the bunion has reached more developed stages and causes significant pain, mobility issues, and stops you from participating in your normal activities, surgery may be the best option to correct the deformity and get you back on your feet.
While mostly harmless, bunions can progress to the point where they cause significant foot pain and mobility issues. When your bunion pain prevents you from doing the things you love or completing your normal daily activities, you may need surgery to correct the issue.
Is your bunion pain out of control? A study conducted by the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research found that 25 percent of people aged 18 to 65, and 36 percent of those over 65 years of age, suffer from bunions. Mild-to-moderate bunion pain can sometimes be relieved through conservative measures such as taking over-the-counter pain medications, taping or padding the foot, applying ice packs, or simply wearing different shoes. But if you have moderate-to-severe bunion pain that is affecting your day-to-day life, it might be time for you to consider minimally invasive bunion surgery (MIS).
When patients are suffering from a painful foot condition, no one ever wants to have surgery because they think it means even more time off their feet in recovery, however, in some cases it's the best way to resolve issues that affect your feet and other parts of the body. Today, podiatrists and physicians prefer to perform minimally invasive surgeries instead of traditional open surgeries.
