The bunion deformity is a common foot problem afflicting about 25% of adult females worldwide. There is no effective non-surgical treatment yet. It is mostly managed by wearing accommodative footwear like oversized running shoes. However, it is a progressive condition, and many may become severe enough to impair biomechanics of the foot and require surgical correction to restore its normal walking function.


Walking is an essential daily living activity and a basic exercise, especially as one ages. Severe bunion deformities can compromise this critical foot function. When surgical correction becomes necessary, it has been the choice between bone-cutting or joint-fusion methods. However, there is now a proven soft-tissue technique that can eliminate pain, restore foot function, and prevent recurrences. This Foundation has been created to promote and offer qualified patients of this cutting-edge bone and joint-sparing surgery, the syndesmosis procedure.
