Bunion surgery (bunionectomy) generally involves an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and the removal or realignment of soft tissue and bone. There are over 100 surgeries for bunions, and more than one procedure may be done at the same time.
Individuals who have undergone non-surgical treatment without relief of beneath pain, or who experience difficulty walking or performing daily activities and chores may benefit from bunions surgery. Before and after surgery, individuals may be required to wear special types of shoes, or avoid certain types of shoes to help maintain support and reduction of symptoms of bunions.
Bunionectomy is highly successful. The usual recovery period after bunionectomy is 6 weeks to 6 months, but complete healing may take as long as 1 year. Find out more where you can have Bunion Removal Surgery in Europe.
