New textbook features minimal invasive bunion surgery procedure by Toronto podiatrist Sheldon Nadal

New foot surgery textbook

According to a 2012 report in the Huffington Post, amongst all the myths surrounding surgical treatment options for bunions, some of the most common misconceptions are that it must involve painful surgery with general anesthesia, recurrence, slow recovery, and severe scarring. However, the fact remains that bunion surgery can be minimally invasive with smooth recovery and results.

This year, a new textbook entitled Minimally Invasive Forefoot Surgery in Clinical Practice, edited by orthopedic surgeons Nicola Maffulli and Mark Easley, was published by Springer press. This book features a chapter by Toronto podiatrist Sheldon Nadal, D.P.M. who presents such a solution in his chapter Minimally Invasive Modified Wilson Osteomy for the Treatment of Hallux Valgus. In this chapter, Nadal highlights how effectively this procedure can be performed for bunions on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. This allows people  to walk immediately after surgery without the need for casts or crutches.

Other chapters include information on treatment options for people suffering from pain and inflammation at the ball of their feet due to dropped metatarsals, as well as surgical treatment for hammertoes , and claw toes. All of these conditions can be treated with Minimally Invasive Surgery outpatient procedures using local anesthetic, a specialty of Toronto podiatrist Sheldon Nadal, D.P.M.
