O.C. Foot Surgeon Receives International Recognition

| From

LAKE FOREST, Calif., July 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Orange County foot surgeon Dr. Richard Moy is widely recognized as the developer of "virtually pain-free" bunion surgery. Normally, bunion surgeries are painful and require lengthy recovery time. But signed patient affidavits (compiled since July of 2005) confirm that 97% of Dr. Moy's patients describe their surgery and recovery as virtually pain free.

Dr Richard Moy DPMSince Dr. Moy began his practice in 1992, he has performed over 3,000 bunion surgeries, making him a world leader in the field. In 2007, Dr. Moy performed over 500 operations, or an average of 44 surgeries per month, more than any other known foot surgeon in the United States.

A bunion is a bone protrusion near the big toe that affects nearly 2% of Americans or an estimated 5.2 million people of all ages (source: National Health Interview Survey, U.S. Bureau of the Census, 1995). Bunions can make it difficult to walk normally, participate in sports or wear high-heeled shoes. Left untreated, bunions generally continue to grow and become more painful.

Following the launch of a video-enhanced website about two years ago, Dr. Moy experienced a significant increase in the number patients traveling from outside California for surgery.

Since 2006, patients have traveled from 38 of the 50 United States, and from countries as distant as Egypt, to experience Dr. Moy's unique form of surgery. Out-of-state patients now account for approximately 25% of the doctor's surgical patients.

"I saved for five years to be able to come and do this surgery," said Nancy Farid, from Cairo, Egypt. "I explored options in India, Costa Rica, the U.K., and New York, but Dr. Moy was the only surgeon who was confident he could do what I needed. I was able to walk immediately after surgery. I had stitches, I had bones removed, and I was able to walk," said Farid.

Dr. Moy is a past President of the Orange County Podiatric Medical Association, a Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons, and Board Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery.
