When Should I Consider Bunion Surgery?

The decision to have bunion surgery is personal and unique for each person. The most common reasons include:

An important factor in deciding whether to have bunion surgery is a full understanding of what the procedure can and can not do. The vast majority of patients who have bunion surgery feel a dramatic reduction of foot pain after surgery, and a significant improvement in the alignment of their big toe. Often, with bunion surgery, you get more for less when you correct the deformity sooner rather than later. Conventional wisdom suggests that you leave the bunion until you can’t stand it any more. This just leads to greater deformity, which is harder to correct.

Not all bunions are created equal! For the best result possible, your surgeon must be experienced in all methods of forefoot surgery, not just one technique for all bunions. Look for a surgeon who is board certified, and has performed many bunion surgery cases. Please consider earlier intervention for a better result!
