The Silver Type Osteotomy Procedure

Bunion Correction via Silver Type Osteotomy

The Silver bunionectomy typically involves removal of the bony prominence, or spur, that exists along the medial or inner portion of the joint of the big toe. This spur forms as a result of chronic pressure from factors including ill-fitting shoes. Constant rubbing and pressure cause the foot to produce excess bone, called an exostosis, at the pressure site. The Silver procedure is a simple, successful way to treat bunion formation in patients who do not display any associated angular deformity of the foot.
