When is bunion surgery necessary?

To start with, it is important to note that bunions are progressive conditions, which means that they will not get better without the use of surgery. That said, relief of symptoms can often be found through the use of nonsurgical methods. We may recommend bunion surgery to patients who:

  • Experience severe pain from the toe deformity and cannot find relief via other methods.
  • Face restricted or limited activities on account of the bunion.
  • Are unable to straighten or bend their big toe.

There are definitely cases where we recommend surgical procedures, but many patients can find the relief they need through conservative measures. Our bunion treatment will typically start with conservative care. If surgery is recommended, you can take comfort in the fact that Richardson Podiatry Associates has the trained personnel, equipment, and environment for successful procedures.
