Bunion Correction @evofoot
The Cinderella Procedure® – by Dr. Ali Sadrieh
When it came to redesigning bunion surgery we didn’t stop with developing a new procedure, we created an entirely new philosophy: Form, Function, and Beauty. These are the three principles that set the standard for excellence in bunion correction. With the evofoot bunion correction, we get the foot back to the correct form, which allows it to function well. Keeping true to our heritage, evofoot bunion surgery is designed and performed with keeping the aesthetic appearance as a priority as important as function.
Our procedure builds on the techniques of renowned podiatric surgeons with a new perspective: provide patients with an advanced bunion correction that allows for a comfortable, functional recovery process, and a beautiful “open-toe shoe friendly” result.

Incision, Dissection, Osteotomy, Fixation, Closure.
To create a new bunionectomy, we had to take what's already good, and make it better. Modern bunion surgery typically involves an osteotomy, a controlled cut of the bone that allows for a reduction in the inter-metatarsal angle.
Over the past 30 years, surgeons have developed a variety of cuts improving each design for increased stability. Most of these however are still unstable without fixation, and require the patient to stay non-weight bearing for up to 8 weeks.
We developed a technique that utilizes a hybrid osteotomy, a stable cut with internal fiaxtion, allowing our patients to walk with a surgical shoe shortly after their procedure (1).
"It's all about the details.
We obsess over the details."
Functional foot surgery without an aesthetically pleasing result can lead to a disappointed patient. We develop all of our procedures merging the best of two specialties, advanced foot surgery with modern plastic surgical techniques.
No detail is too small, which is why we implement the most advanced technologies to help get you better results. Think of it as foot surgery... for the 21st century.

get back to life sooner.
Modern procedures + Advanced fixation systems = Shorter more comfortable experience
Time before getting foot wet
The average time for skin to heal is 2-3 weeks. Once the incisions are healed you can get your foot wet.
Time before resuming normal activity
After the 4th or 5th week, when x-rays show quality bone healing, you can begin transitioning to normal activity (4).
Time before getting back to work
Once the skin is healed, you wear athletic shoes for 2 more weeks. During this time you can get back to work (5).
