Bunions can cause severe foot pain, and if no other bunion treatment provides pain relief, your doctor may recommend surgery.
Types of Bunion Surgery
There are a number of procedures that may provide bunion pain relief, such as:
- Removal of the bunion (part of the metatarsal head)
- Removal of a bone wedge from the metatarsal or the big toe
- Removal of bone from the metatarsal and reshaping of the joint at the base of the big toe
- Fusion of the metatarsal and big toe
- Realignment of ligaments around the big toe
- Implant of an artificial joint
The type of bunions you have, your foot and overall health and other factors will be considered when determining which type of surgery is right for you.
Risks to Bunion Surgery
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that bunion surgery will achieve complete or lasting pain relief. Bunion pain may persist, and bunions may return, especially if you continue to wear high-heeled and/or pointed-toe shoes. Other risks of surgery include:
- Limited range of mobility
- Abnormal bend of the big toe
- Degenerative joint disease
Surgery also entails a long recovery period. Depending on the type of surgery, you may need to be completely off your foot for six to eight weeks and/or wear a cast or boot to limit movement and weight bearing.
