CrossRoads Extremity Systems MINIBunion™ Implant

Content Contributor

The CrossRoads Extremity Systems MINIBunion™ Implant is part of a system that allows for the bony malalignment to be corrected and held in place, just like in traditional bunion surgery, but all through a very tiny incision along the inner border of the great toe. The surgeon uses a guide and set of tools that come with the implant to make a cut in the metatarsal bone of the great toe. The surgeon then manually straightens the great toe and inserts the MINIBunion™ Implant through the same small incision. Two screws are then used to lock the implant in place in the newly-straightened toe. The system also includes materials to put stitches in the joint capsule to tighten it back up after bunion correction. Standard post-operative instructions with the MINIBunion™ Implant involve early weight-bearing in a post-op shoe.
