From Discomfort to Delight: How Foot Bunion Surgery Can Improve Your Quality of Life

More than unsightly, Bunions can significantly impede your daily comfort and mobility. Dr Tan Ken Jin, a distinguished foot and ankle specialist, is at the forefront of treating this common yet debilitating condition with modern surgical methods.

What is a Foot Bunion?

A foot bunion, medically known as hallux valgus, is a deformity involving the big toe and the first metatarsal bone. The toe gradually bends towards the other toes, forming a prominent bump that can lead to discomfort and pain.

Symptoms and Causes of Foot Bunions

Symptoms of bunions include swelling, redness, and tenderness around the big toe joint, often aggravated by pressure from shoes. Factors like genetics, certain foot types, and inappropriate footwear contribute to their development.

When is Foot Bunion Surgery Necessary?

Surgery is considered when bunions cause persistent pain or hinder daily activities. Dr Tan Ken Jin adopts a patient-specific approach to determine the necessity of surgery, considering the individual’s pain level, lifestyle, and the bunion’s severity.

Exploring the Different Types of Foot Surgery for Bunions

While there are several surgical options for bunions, Dr Tan Ken Jin specializes in minimally invasive techniques. These procedures involve smaller incisions, leading to reduced scarring and a faster recovery, allowing patients to resume their normal activities sooner.

The Benefits of Foot Bunion Surgery

Undergoing bunion surgery not only alleviates pain but also corrects the deformity, improving the overall function of the foot. Dr Tan Ken Jin’s personalized approach ensures optimal outcomes for each patient.

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery

Dr Tan Ken Jin is an advocate of minimally invasive bunion surgery. This technique involves smaller incisions, which means less tissue trauma, reduced scarring, and a quicker recovery than traditional surgery. Patients benefit from better outcomes, experiencing less postoperative discomfort and a faster return to their daily routines.

Guidance Jig System: A Surgical Advancement

Dr Tan Ken Jin is the first surgeon in Singapore to employ the guidance jig system in bunion surgery. This modern technology allows for more precise and accurate alignment of the bones during the procedure, ensuring better patient outcomes.

What Makes Dr Tan Ken Jin Stand Out?

Dr Tan Ken Jin’s expertise in minimally invasive bunion surgery and early adoption of the guidance jig system in Singapore showcase his commitment to utilizing modern techniques in foot and ankle surgery. His patient-centred approach ensures that each individual receives the most effective and tailored care for their condition.
