6 Secrets About Bunions
1) Shoe style CAN impact formation
2) Different procedures based on severity
3) Virtually no pain postoperatively
4) 20% of bunion surgery Fail, if not done correctly
5) Sooner you address, less crippling arthritis formation
6) New Scarless Bunionectomy is possible via selective surgeons
Bunions are more prevalent among women because female hormones soften the tissues. High heels and pointy shoes often exacerbate the problem.
Bunion surgery has often been known as a very painful procedure with a long recovery period. It is important that a highly experienced specialist foot and ankle surgeon performs the operation.
Minimally invasive bunion surgery techniques at Family Foot and Leg Center leaves minimal scar with reduced post operative pain and swelling.
Dear Dr. Lam,
Back in 2011 you successfully operated my bunion on my left foot. I have been able to go back to dancing since then, for which I'm very grateful - Phoebe L..
My ugly bunion feet have always been a problem that I cannot wear fashionable sandals. Fortunately, with the minimally invasive bunion surgery offered at Family Foot and Leg Center, I was able to get back to having normal feet without pain. I would strongly recommend their procedure. --- Darla T.
Since my bunion surgery last year, I am walking pain free. I am also very delighted with the cosmetic results. Thank you to Dr. Kevin Lam. -- Rachelle W
bunion has always kept me from wearing nice shoes and thus I was
limited to closed footwear or running shoes. I came to FFLC with doubts
as I have heard stories about how painful bunion surgery can be.
Surprise! The procedure 'minimally invasive bunion surgery' delivers its
promise. I had very minimal discomfort, recovery was quick, and my feet
now look good as new. I can now proudly wear any footwear I like :)

Dr. Kevin Lam is awesome. I came to Naples Podiatrist office asking for a second opinion. My other foot doctor who did a bunion surgery on my left foot a couple of years ago gave me second thoughts about having the surgery on my right foot. Now I am glad I came to Dr. Lam for their no scar bunion surgery. They operated on my right foot, removed the bunion, with virtually no pain and no scar! Also, everyone at his office and everyone that works with him at the clinic are the nicest doctor's staff I have ever met. I highly recommend Dr. Kevin Lam for bunion surgery. -- Carrie R.
I had a problem with bunion for a decade and one of my big toes was really causing me too much pain when walking. This was getting in the way of my daily activities. I read about the Lam Modification No Scar Bunion Surgery so I went to their office in Naples, Florida for consult. Dr. Lam was so nice to explain all the options, pros and cons of bunionectomy, and what to expect with the procedure. Now, after the surgery, I am back on my feet and I can't even see the scars! -- J. White
If you have bunions, then Dr. Kevin Lam is the doc to go to. He did such a good job with removing my bunions and not only that, it was virtually no pain and no scar bunion surgery. He is the best and most knowledgeable foot doctor I have ever been to. So I wasn't surprised to learn that Dr. Lam is named amongst America's Top Podiatrists. - Harold D.
I came to Dr. Kevin Lam because of a pretty severe bunion on my left foot. He was very reassuring before the surgery and explained the procedure to me. I was very well taken care of by the staff during and after the bunionectomy. The bunion surgery went extremely well, and in fact, even though they gave me pain medication, I only had to take it once when the anesthesia wore off. I am amazed that this is virtually no pain bunion surgery. Recovery was very quick too. I hardly even see any scar so for me, this is a "no scar bunion surgery". I highly recommend Dr. Lam for anyone wanting to have bunion treatment. No reason to fear bunion surgery if you have the right doctor.
I have travelled 200 miles to see Dr. Lam after reading about him on the internet and fashion magazines. I am a runway and swimsuit model of Jamaican descent. I happen to keloid also so the traditional bunionectomy would ruin my career. My consultation with Dr. Lam was reassuring and now 2 months after bunion surgery, I am back to work on the set and people can not notice my scars. Thank goodness for Dr. Kevin Lam, this innovative technique or I would have never been able to get bunion surgery and my modeling days would be coming to an end. Career saving surgery with Dr. Lam, Thank You.
I’m back from my most amazing hiking/camping trip on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington (Go there).
Just wanted to give you BIG BIG Kudos. I hiked 34 miles in 3 days- up and down 6 and 7,000’ mountains and my foot did AMAZING. No issues at all. No one can believe I was able to do that. Says so much about you and your work. Thank you thank you thank you.
Will definitely be passing on the good work about you and your staff.
All the best, — Thea M.
