What is bunion surgery?
Bunions are often painful deformities of the foot that require surgery to correct and alleviate pain. There are many different types of bunion surgery.
In general, bunion surgery calls for an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and removal or realignment of soft tissue bone to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the joint.
The surgeon may insert tiny wires, stitches, or screws to stabilize a severely deformed joint.
