Frankel FastStep – tiny incision, pain-free bunion correction
No two bunions are exactly the same, but Dr. Frankel has in-depth surgical solutions for every bunion, including yours! After careful diagnosis, on the day of surgery, he anesthetizes your foot from the knee down. Using three tiny incisions, he removes the bunion growth, straightens the big toe and ensures it will have high functionality in the future. Dr. Frankel is frequently asked to correct failed bunion surgeries performed elsewhere. He gets it right every time!
Frankel FastStep Bunion Surgery is innovative
At the heart of Dr. Frankel’s procedure are a few simple facts:
- The incisions are tiny, much less invasive and therefore less painful
- Tiny incisions heal faster
- You get back to full function faster
- You’re more active. Your foot feels great and your shoes finally fit properly
Where do bunions come from?
At the joint where the big toe meets the foot, bone and tissue can form that, over a period of years, forces the big toe to bend towards the rest of the toes causing painful “bump” and joint pain.
Scientists have not yet found a clear cause of bunions and though you may have heard that they are a result of poorly fitting shoes, that is not the whole story. Bunions often run in families, with women developing them more often than men.
When should I have bunion surgery?
Bunions do not go away on their own. In fact, they get worse as time goes by. If you’ve reached the point where your bunion pain is preventing you from living your life, it’s time to call Dr. Marc Frankel. You’ll receive the responsive care of a highly skilled board certified, foot and ankle specialist who has spent 20 years perfecting the Frankel FastStep Bunion Program to correct your bunions quickly, conveniently, and – best of all – pain free!
