Bunion correction surgery often involves resetting the bone or an osteotomy for bunion realignment. For more significant bunions there is often a fusion of the first metatarsal cuneiforms joint called a Lapidus procedure or Lapiplasy. For these cases it’s important to address both the soft tissue healing including the incision healing along with the underlying bone healing.

Bone healing can be addressed with variety of different measures including proper immobilization with the cast or a boot to keep weight off the area where the bone is healing. Bone healing stimulation devices, supplements that enhance bone healing such as ortho pro bono can help.
