Quite a few patients come into the office wondering if they need bunion surgery. I usually ask the following questions:
1. Do you have pain daily at your bunion?
2. Are you having a hard time participating in the activities you enjoy, such as hiking, biking, etc?
3. Do you have a family history of bunion deformities?
4. Are you having difficulties fitting in your shoes?
Most of the patients I advise to have bunion surgery answer “Yes” to the majority of these questions. Bunion surgery and bunion surgery recovery vary by the size of your bunion and a few other factors. We have fixed thousands of bunions and use the latest techniques to minimize down time and scar appearance. We do everything from minimally invasive bunion surgery to reconstructive bunion surgery. The best thing to do is schedule an appointment and have your bunion evaluated, even if you do not want surgery we have techniques to slow the progression of your bunion.
