Mc Bride, Keller, Mitchell, Mann, and Lapidus are names which reference techniques but they also present principles of treatment that establish the basis for current bunion surgery. Many components of these methods are used today and incorporated into modern bunion surgery. Level of Evidence: Diagnostic Level V.
