Hallux Valgus (bunion): innovation in surgical techniques

PBS Research

Our core research focuses on various foot conditions and aims specifically to treat them, while fully complying with the laws of biomechanics and the physiology of the foot.

Research and improvement are central to the PBS spirit. All of the group’s professionals – surgeons, physiatrists, physiotherapists, podiatrists, orthopaedic technicians and secretarial coordinators – are constantly stimulated by the search for continual innovation.

The orthopaedic technique to correct Hallux Valgus sees continual improvements in the angle of fracture, in the post-surgery bandaging and in the instruments used. The instruments are an evident example of how PBS pursues its objective for continual improvement. Today, specific instruments developed by the PBS team exist. Nevertheless, they are subjected to continual, technical and qualitative improvements.

The creation of the PBS Procedure is another result of our research, applied to our relationship with patients, who are accompanied step-by-step through the stages of their treatment and guided from the initial consultation to the choice of treatment and on to the subsequent check-ups
