Should I Have Bunion Surgery?

This is a common question from bunion sufferers, and it is an important topic to address. As you may know, there are conservative treatment options for bunion pain that will help slow or halt the progression of a bunion, but once it has reached a certain point there is not a way to get rid of that bony bump on the side of the foot without a surgical procedure.

 

So, many bunion sufferers do opt for surgery, but whether or not surgery is an option for you is really dependent on your particular case and the severity of the bunion. In mild to moderate cases, surgery may not be necessary, so if you are suffering from a bunion, it is best to get treatment for it earlier rather than later, like with any foot problem. If you catch it early on, you may only need conservative treatments.

 

It is important that you go into any surgical procedure with all the information you need to make an informed decision and take care of yourself properly. There are different surgical procedures used for correcting bunions, and your podiatrist will choose the best surgical procedure for you. These procedures are usually performed on an outpatient basis.

 

Once the bunion is corrected, it is very important to treat what caused the bunion to develop in the first place. If the initial problem is left untreated, the bunion can reoccur. Orthotic devices or shoe changes may be needed.
