About Bunion surgery

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Bunion Surgery?
Bunion surgery is a surgical procedure to remove painful deformed bones known as bunions from the foot and big toe. Bunion surgery is performed when other non-surgical treatments are unsuccessful.

How is Bunion Surgery Performed?

  • An incision is made on the toe joint and bones.
  • The deformed bones and joint are then repaired using screws, pins, and plates to fix the bones in place.
  • The following repairs may be performed during a bunion surgery:
    • Shortening or elongating certain ligaments and tendons
    • Arthrodesis, which is the removal of the damaged portion of the joint and holding the joint together using screws, wires and plates.
    • Exostectomy or bunionectomy, which is the removal of the bulging bone of the foot know as the metatarsal head.
    • Realignment of ligaments around the joint of the big toe
    • Metatarsal osteotomy, which is the removal of the small bone wedge from the foot
    • Phalangeal osteotomy, which is the removal of the small bone wedge from the toe
    • Resection arthroplasty that involves reshaping of the big toe and metatarsal bones at the metatarsophalangeal joint
    • Lapidus procedure, which is the fusion of the metatarsal bone and mid-foot joint
    • Insertion of implants on joints

How to Prepare for Bunion Surgery?
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient is taking with or without a prescription. These may include supplements or herbs or drugs.
  • Certain medication that the patient is taking may be stopped two weeks before the surgery.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient has any ailments or medical conditions.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient has been drinking more than 2 drinks of alcohol per day.
  • The patient must stop smoking to ensure a quick recovery.
  • The patient may be required to learn some exercises from a physical therapist before the surgery. The patient may also need to learn how to use crutches.
