What is hallux valgus?
Hallux valgus or bunion of the foot, is a deformity of the front of the foot which is characterized by a deviation of the big toe towards the inside. Hallux valgus is one of the most common pathologies of the forefoot.
Several factors can be the cause of the appearance or aggravation of hallux valgus. Wearing narrow or high-heeled shoes, heredity, age or other foot deformities.
How is the surgery performed?
Dr. Julien Lopez, hallux valgus specialist, uses the a minimally invasive technique. During the operation, the surgeon makes small incisions of only a few centimeters. The objective is to make openings large enough to insert surgical instruments and cameras to visualize the inside of the foot (light source, camera, surgical instruments). Dr Julien Lopez can then visualize the inside of the foot and the surgical gestures are performed on a control screen.

This type of orthopedic hallux valgus surgery has many advantages compared to conventional surgery.
Reduced post-operative pain and improved recovery time
The bunion operation is percutaneous and takes place under loco-regional anesthesia. This type of anesthesia numbs the foot for 15 to 20 hours. After this period of time, Doctor Julien Lopez will prescribe a treatment of painkillers for you over the next few days. Pain management is one of Dr. Lopez's priorities.
