Dr. Brandon Nelson Discusses How to Get the Most Out of Your Bunion Surgery

bunionsurgery

At Issaquah Foot and Ankle Specialists we average about 3-5 bunion surgeries every week. We find a lot of variation in bunion deformities from pediatrics bunion to Tailor's bunions. Bunions can have many different causes and it’s important to address all these deforming forces in order to maximize outcomes. Some people benefit from what's called a distal or metatarsal head procedure, others will need a more proximal or base procedure.

The majority of bunion procedures we performed patients are usually walking the first day after surgery. The limiting factor is usually swelling or pain at the operative site. We try to encourage patients to ambulate early and do functional range of motion quickly to maximize outcomes. The majority of bunion surgeries we provide at our clinic have great and quick outcomes. If you have bunion pain additionally we have many conservative options that we can provide for patients.
