Dr. Alireza Khosroabadi (Dr. K) has developed and perfected a new type of bunion surgery. This type of specialized surgery leaves little, if any, scaring on the outside of the foot and inside the foot.
The Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery leaves far less swelling than the traditional bunion surgery, which means patients can be back on their feet (2-4 weeks), much sooner than traditional bunion surgery (up to 3 months).
My minimally invasive procedure can achieve the same result as traditional bunion surgery but through a small 5-10mm incision. With this tiny incision, patients are quickly back on their feet with little to no pain.
During his foot and ankle surgical residency in New York, Dr. Alireza Khosroabadi traveled to a lecture in Pittsburgh by Dr. John Herzenberg M.D. the co-director of international limb lengthening Institute of Maryland in Baltimore. He was fascinated by this lecture and started inquiring about the Fellowship position in Baltimore. He was accepted to a one-year fellowship at the Rubin Institute for advanced orthopedics/international limb lengthening Institute in Baltimore under Dr. Dror Paley MD and Dr. John Herzenberg MD.
During his fellowship in Baltimore, Dr. Khosroabadi’s passion grew for correction of limb length discrepancy and limb deformity. After finishing his fellowship in Baltimore, he moved to Los Angeles California and started his own practice Foot and Ankle Alliance.
