Should I consider bunion surgery?
There are conservative treatment options for addressing a bunion, but there are also times when we will recommend bunion surgery. Our goal is to always use nonsurgical treatments when possible. In the case of a bunion, this can include pads, taping, medication, icing, and orthotic devices. If the bunion is not responding to conservative methods and providing the relief we would hope to see, we may consider surgery as an option.
Surgery is typically reserved for bunions that cause frequent, severe pain or ones that interfere with your daily activities. If we recommend a procedure, we will carefully discuss beforehand everything you need to know—all the way through your recovery. This enables you to make an informed decision.
