Evolution of Bunion Surgery

Treatment of bunion deformity can be as simple as shoe wear modification, or as involved as foot surgery to break and realign the bones of the foot and fix them in place with hardware. The goal of treating a bunion is to improve the alignment of the great toe joint, reduce or eliminate the bump on the inner border, and improve other related toe problems, all in an effort to relieve foot pain. Because the foot is dependent to gravity, post-operative swelling and pain are sometimes challenging for patients to manage.
