BEVERLY HILLS, CA, — FASTRAC Journal — April 22, 2023 – Bunion King® Dr. Neal Blitz, DPM, FACFAS, announced today the publication of his guest commentary “New Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery: Easier Said than Done” in the Spring 2023 issue of the Journal Foot and Ankle Surgery: Techniques, Reports, & Cases (FASTRAC) of the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons.
In the editorial, he offers surgeon peers a candid, bold perspective on the history and future of minimally invasive bunion surgery. He also addresses the heightened proficiency standards that he believes are a key contributor to successful outcomes for surgeons and their patients.
“While minimally invasive bunion surgery, or MIBS, continues to evolve rapidly, it’s not too late to learn.” Dr. Blitz noted in subsequent public discussion surrounding the article. “We are still in the early days of this game-changing surgery.”
Dr. Blitz also offers reassurance to those who may be newer to minimally invasive procedures. “Surgeons wishing to add new MIBS to their bunion repair techniques won't need to experience the trials and tribulations of the founders, pioneers, and early adopters.”
Dr. Blitz is a board certified surgeon and creator of the Bunionplasty® procedure, a revolutionary, minimally invasive bunion surgery with a walking recovery, and has more than 17 years of experience in bunion surgery using his own patented innovations. He is a strong proponent of enhancing patient education and fostering more open communication among surgeons performing MIBS.
