Arthrex, a global leader in minimally invasive orthopedic technology, launched BunionPain.com, the company’s patient-focused website, focused on Arthrex’s innovative procedure for minimally invasive bunion correction.
BunionPain.com was developed in collaboration with top foot and ankle surgeons across the U.S. and provides easily accessible information about bunions—a very common foot deformity characterized by an unsightly hard bump on the side of the big toe that can be painful. The site features information about the Arthrex Bunionectomy, a minimally invasive procedure done through tiny incisions that corrects bunions and gets patients back on their feet faster, with less pain and smaller scars.1,2
“Anyone who has suffered from bunions knows how difficult it can be to live with this condition. Our goal with BunionPain.com is to create an educational hub for those seeking information about the science of bunions, their potential treatment options and how they can connect with expert surgeons in their area,” said Arthrex Senior Director of Extremities and Trauma Pete Denove.
Bunions, which can be hereditary or caused by footwear, affect an estimated 30% to 50% of Americans. Women are far more likely to develop a bunion than men, and that likelihood increases with age.3,4 More than just unsightly bumps on the side of the foot, bunions form when the bones of the big toe move out of alignment, leading to pain and deformity so severe it may require surgery. The Arthrex Bunionectomy has been clinically proven to achieve the same or better corrective results than other more aggressive surgeries.5,6
