I elected to have a minimally invasive bunion correction on my left foot and a correction of an adjacent hammertoe on November 28, 2018.
I thought long and hard about the surgery as I am extremely physically active. I heard numerous stories from friends and family members who have undergone bunion surgery with less than perfect recoveries.
I knew I wanted to be a patient at HSS but needed to find a doctor who could get me back in my game as quick as possible. Dr. Johnson and her caring staff made that happen for me!
I listened to their instructions and elevated and iced the first few weeks and by week 5 I was feeling anxious to resume exercise.
After 4 months I am running 7 miles again!!!! I walked my first round of golf this weekend and feel completely healed.
I will return to Dr. Johnson next Fall for my right foot bunion correction.
