While bunions are not a serious medical condition, you may have to opt for surgery for their removal, should they interfere with your carrying out day-to-day activities.
What is a Bunion?
- A bunion is a tiny overgrowth in the first joint of the big toe.
- A bunion protrudes out from the joint and presses the bones of the big toe causing it to curve out.
- It also causes the big toe to press against the other toes, thereby causing deformity in the foot.
- Bunions may result in pain and make it difficult to wear shoes.
- It is alternatively known as hallux abducto valgus deformity.
- The medical community remains divided over the cause of bunions. While some believe a bunion is an outcome of prolonged use of ill-fitting shoes, others are of the opinion that certain genetic factors result in bunions, which are aggravated by wearing shoes that don’t fit well or high heels.
An Overview of Bunionectomy
- Bunionectomy is alternatively known as exostectomy.
- The procedure involves excising away the bulging portion of the foot.
- During the procedure, your surgeon will make a cut at the head of the big toe.
- A tiny portion of the bone is removed.
- The bone is realigned to remove deformity in the foot.
- Your surgeon may also use a screw, wire, or a pin to correctly align your foot.
- Since bunionectomy is usually performed on an outpatient basis, you may be able to return home the very day you have surgery.
- Do bear in mind a bunion may recur after surgery, especially if you continue to wear ill-fitting footwear or high heels
- You may have to remain off your operated foot for some time after your bunion surgery.
When opt for Surgery?
You may want to opt for a bunionectomy if:
- Non-operative treatments have failed to alleviate pain and discomfort
- You find it difficult to walk or accomplish normal day-to-day activities
