As bunion is a common condition, please find exemplarily information to the surgical bunion treatment as follows.
Bunion Surgery (Hallux valgus)
A bunion is a bump, a bony deformity, at the base of the big toe, located at the joint. In particular women are affected. Common causes are wearing of too tight shoes, abnormal motion, heritable deformities or medical conditions such as arthritis.
Your skin at the joint might be red or swollen, the joint inflamed and you might feel pain. The big toe pushes to the second toe and it can result in an overlapping of toes, which can cause even more issues such as corns and motion problems.
The course is progressive and when conservative treatments are not successful, a surgery could be recommended.
Surgical procedures of mild to moderate bunion will be performed without introducing any foreign material to the foot. The surgery can include a removal of a part of the bone and will usually be performed under spinal or general anesthesia as a daycare procedure. The patient can walk again without crutches as early as 2 days afterwards and it is possible to put weight on the foot 2 weeks after the intervention.
