MiniBunion Lab: ALL CLINICS Now Offering the Revolutionary Bunion Procedure

Great news for Central Florida residents suffering from bunions—we’re adding three more surgeons to our dream team of miniBunion® system providers. If you don’t know, it’s a minimally-invasive procedure for the correction of bunions that allows for immediate weight-bearing post-op (i.e., “a walking recovery”), a quicker healing process, and a more inconspicuous scar.

When we brought Dr. Young on board Modern Foot & Ankle last month, we snagged ourselves a miniBunion expert: last year, he received the developer’s Center of Excellence award for performing more than 25 procedures. Only a handful of surgeons across the country have earned this distinction (plus, that was in September—he’s completed way more since then).

During a break in the lab, a sales rep presented Dr. Young with his Center of Excellence plaque. Status: Expert level.

The only problem? Dr. Young can’t be everywhere all the time. While we initially were only able to offer the miniBunion at our Tampa Bay clinics, it was a no-brainer to expand the service immediately to the Orlando Area. So we arranged a lab with developer CrossRoads Extremity Systems at a nearby hotel and had Dr. Young, who’s a certified instructor, show the rest of our podiatric surgeons just how it’s done.

Now Dr. Patel, Dr. Zuri, and Dr. Siegel are each providing the miniBunion service at their respective locations, which means not only are there more opportunities for patients to receive it in Tampa, Lutz, and Brandon, but it’s available for the first time at our Casselberry clinic (and when it opens later this year, the new Winter Garden clinic).  

Check out these snippets from the lab. (WARNING: human foot pictured below.)
