A time-tested solution for your feet — and for your lifestyle.

Every foot is different, so every bunion repair is different. But the Bunionplasty® procedure is tailored to work for bunions of all sizes, even the largest and most severe. And because it allows for a walking recovery, the procedure can be performed on both feet at the same time. Be Bunion Free® with one surgery, one recovery, one creator: Dr. Blitz.

This is what a No Casts No Crutches® walking recovery can look like:

1 Patient wearing surgical sandals immediately after bunion surgery on both feet

Day 1

Immediate walking in a small surgical sandal, even when both feet are repaired at once.

2 Patient wearing sneakers 6 weeks after surgery

Week 6

Return to walking comfortably in sneakers for longer periods.

3 Patient wearing heels two months after bunion surgery

Month 2

Back to full recreation and wearing high heels if desired.

The unique technology behind Bunionplasty® success.

Patented, advanced technology.

The right tools make all the difference, and Dr. Blitz uses technology that was custom-designed for the Bunionplasty® procedure. Over the years, Dr. Blitz found that to achieve the successful, aesthetic results his patients demand – and the stability for an immediate walking recovery in a surgical sandal – he needed technology that simply wasn’t available yet. His patented technology and advanced techniques have revolutionized the recovery process.

Together, these technologies allow Dr. Blitz to perform his procedure to the highest standards:

What is a bunion?

No two bunions are the same.

A bunion, or hallux abductovalgus, is a condition that results in a bony prominence on the inside of the foot, at the big toe joint. Many people think bunions are an overgrowth of bone. But a bunion is actually the dislocation of the big toe joint as it bulges out from beneath the skin. Bunions result when the bones of the feet misalign, causing the big toe to deviate toward the second toe. They sometimes need to be corrected by surgery.

Bunions tend to worsen over time, causing severe deformity.
