骨を切らずに行なう外反母趾矯正

Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road offers a variety of advanced treatments for bunions, all of which are managed by skilled bunion experts with over 25 years of experience in the field. Our experts are supported by a dedicated team of physiotherapists and nursing staff, who assist our patients in making a full recovery following their treatment.

 

What is a hallux valgus / bunion deformity?

A bunion forms when the first metatarsal bone of the foot and the big toe move out of alignment, causing the bones to slant and shift so that the joint of the big toe becomes angled and protrudes outwards.

 

Who is at risk? 

Wearing narrow, pointed, or high-heeled shoes for prolonged periods of time may increase your risk of developing a bunion. However, the main causes of bunions are linked to hereditary factors and estrogen, the primary female hormone.

 

How are bunions treated?

Even if preventive measures are taken, bunions may still worsen overtime. However, they can be initially managed with shoes featuring roomier toe boxes, extra width, soft uppers, or thick soles, such as the trainers. If necessary, the use of splints, physiotherapy, or pain medication may help to temporarily alleviate pain. If conservative treatment is unable to relieve symptoms and the pain interferes with daily activities, surgery may be considered as a more definitive solution.

 

Why non-bone-breaking bunion surgery?

Traditional bunion treatment involves the breaking of bones. However, since bunions are formed as a result of normal but misaligned bones and caused by weak supporting ligaments, the best solution is to fix the ligament problem instead of breaking otherwise healthy bones, which further complicates the treatment process.

 

The non-bone-breaking syndesmosis procedure

The purpose of the syndesmosis procedure is to realign and stabilize the displaced metatarsal bone. This is done by tying the first metatarsal bone to the adjacent second metatarsal bone, which will allow a syndesmosis fibrous bridge to grow, thereby stabilizing the first metatarsal bone and preventing recurrence.

 

What are the benefits of the syndesmosis procedure?

+ Less pain, quicker return to walking

+ Lower risk of surgical complications

+ Lower risk of deformity recurrence in the long run

+ Good aesthetic outcome and excellent function restoration

+ Unrestricted return to everyday activities and normal shoes following recovery

 

The Recovery Experience

The recovery experience for Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery is a unique journey back to normal foot functionality. Our patients typically report very ‘linear’ improvement over 6 months, meaning the foot gets better steadily and predictably, with few exceptions. To realize the best possible outcome, patient participation and cooperation is critical.

 

DAY 1-10 Hospital and Home

You may experience moderate pain for the first 1-2 days, but little afterwards. Painkillers should not be necessary after 2-3 days. Walking is allowed any time, but only indoors and with your surgical shoes. Elevation will keep swelling down and ice is for pain relief. Big toe mobility exercises:hold your big toe back for 30 seconds; push and release your big toe 30 times; and press your big toe against your hand for 30 seconds – repeat 3 times hourly until your big toe achieves a 90° extension.

 

Month 1 Sutures Holding Strong

Your surgical wounds are healing and small forefoot casts will be applied 10 days after surgery. The casts serve to protect the internal holding sutures while the new ligament is forming. Walk lightly and less than 3,000 steps a day. Always use crutches for outdoor walking. Still rest and elevate your feet whenever possible. Continue your big toe mobility exercises to maintain flexibility.

 

Month 2-3 Syndesmosis Growth

You will find it much easier to walk and you can take up to 5,000 steps per day. Your new ligament formation is well underway, but the entire process requires two more months. The internal holding sutures will further weaken with each step. Big toe strengthening exercises: The Michael Jackson anti-gravity lean.

 

Month 4 Transition Month

Without your casts, you may very gradually return to normal walking at a slow pace. You will be given specific shoe inserts to wear in your sneakers or trainers. Continue your big toe strengthening exercises, adding balancing and walking exercises.

 

Month 5-6 The Final Stretch

The bones in your feet and your new ligament(s) are strong enough to support normal walking. Since there is no method to test their actual strengths, we recommend low-impact exercises such as swimming and stationary bicycle. Continue all our exercises for strength, balance and a normal gait.

 

After 6 Months The Final Stretch

The bones in your feet and your new ligament(s) are strong enough to support normal walking. Since there is no method to test their actual strengths, we recommend low-impact exercises such as swimming and stationary bicycle. Continue all our exercises for strength, balance and a normal gait.
