What Is Bunion Surgery and Its Purpose

Bunion surgery is one of the most effective treatments for forefoot deformity. This procedure is also known as bunionectomy or hallux valgus correction. It is used to alleviate pain and discomfort during your walking cycle or other physical activities. Your NYC podiatrist Dr. Sophia Solomon will assess various factors before deciding on the most appropriate treatment option. Sometimes, people have a bunion deformity on both feet, and treating both deformities at the same time is known as a bilateral bunionectomy.

Dr. Sophia Solomon offers the most effective and aesthetically pleasing treatment options for patients dealing with bunions. You can rest assured that the procedure will correct your foot deformity with minimal scarring.

Surgical Bunion Correction

Surgical bunion correction is the process of removing the bump from the big toe joint. Your bunion surgeon will do a minimal incision over your foot deformity to get an optimal cosmetic result. She will also move the metatarsal bone over to prevent the foot deformity from returning. The most common types of bunion removal procedures include Osteotomy, Exostectomy, and Arthrodesis. Dr. Sophia Solomon will determine the most appropriate type of bunion surgery based on the size and shape of your bunion.

After minimally invasive New York bunion surgery, you can expect to return to your normal activities within six to eight weeks. However, there are various factors that can influence your recovery after bunion surgery. These include your age, your overall health condition, the extent of the deformity, the type of correction you received, etc. You should contact your bunion surgeon if you experience symptoms like fever, chills, calf pain, increased pain and swelling in the area of surgery, etc.
