How Is Bunion (Hallux Valgus) Surgery Performed?

Hallux Valgus surgery is usually a bilateral surgical procedure. The unilateral surgical procedure takes approixamately one and a half hours, while the bilateral surgical procedure takes an average of three hours.

However, the duration may be extended, if different or additional surgeries are required for the patient.

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery

Better Method, Best Conclusion

Due to the small incisions, minimally invasive bunionectomy has fewer side effects, a quicker recovery, and superior cosmetic outcomes.  In comparison to my patients who have the open technique, I’ve seen that those who get the minimally invasive procedure require less pain medication, have better great toe range of motion, and recover from the procedure and are able to wear standard shoes in half the time.

FAQs Bunion (Hallux Valgus)

Surgery to remove bunions shouldn’t be done purely for aesthetic reasons. Patients who struggle to wear shoes or who have pain in their daily lives despite wearing wider, more comfortable shoes are performed on this procedure.

You might be a candidate for surgical bunion correction if you’ve tried wearing wider shoes, padding, toe spacers, or other treatments but still have pain that limits your activity.

A metatarsal osteotomy or bunionectomy is the corrective procedure for a bunion. To straighten the great toe and lessen the bump on the side of the foot, many procedures are used, but they all require removing the bones and relocating them with metal screws.

Bunion surgery has a reputation for being extremely painful and requiring a long recovery. However, certain patients may profit from the significant benefits of more recent, minimally invasive procedures. Traditionally, these surgeries have been carried out through big incisions, but at HSS, I have developed two unique methods to treat bunions with relatively minor incisions.

Wearing only wide-toed and/or soft shoes, utilizing “bunion pads” or toe spacers, and using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, are all examples of conservative, nonsurgical treatment for bunions.

Toe spacers and other tools that keep the great toe separated from the second toe may ease pain, but they cannot remove a bunion. Without undergoing surgery, the toe alignment won’t improve over time.
