This is a common question we receive at our practice. The only way to fix your bunion once and for all is surgically. There are many different types of bunion surgeries. Bunion surgeries can be broken down into distal, mid-shaft and proximal procedures. Distal procedures are for smaller bunions and proximal are for larger bunions and people with ligamentous laxity. Mid-shaft procedures are usually reserved for bunion that are neither small nor large.
The best way to avoid reoccurrence is to have the proper procedure selected and follow the post-operative protocol. Bunion surgery can take 6-12 weeks to recover from depending on adjunctive procedures and the bunionectomy performed.
