What Is Bunion Surgery

Bunion surgery is one of the most common foot operations performed in the UK.

Most people do not realise this as a problem until the joint becomes painful or they have footwear fitting problems as the foot begins to splay and spread. 

A bunion is not just a growth of bone but a gradual dislocation of the big toe joint due to failure of supporting ligaments and tendons around the big toe joint, therefore most modern treatments are directed towards correcting the overall alignment of the joint rather than ‘bumpectomy’, as the older techniques were often labelled.

Bunion surgery generally involves an incision on the top or side of the big toe joint and the removal or realignment of soft tissue and bone. This is done to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the joint. Techniques and advancement in screw and plate technology allow early weight-bearing and minimally invasive techniques. This means our foot surgeons are able to perform this operation with minimal trauma, thus allowing quicker recovery and return to normal life after the operation.
