Bunion Surgery

Is It for You?

Bunion Surgery: The Options

A bunion, the bump next to your big toe that throbs when you wear tight shoes, occurs because of abnormal overgrowth of tissue and bone. Different types of surgery can correct a bunion. The surgeon can:

  • Remove parts of the damaged joint or big toe bone.
  • Stretch the tendons surrounding the big toe.
  • Repair the poorly aligned big toe joint.

Bunion Surgery: Is It for You?

Usually, bunion surgery is an elective procedure, and is only performed when you’ve tried everything else, says Ford.

Most people — as many as 90 percent — who have bunion surgery are glad that they did. You might be ready to consider bunion surgery if you:

  • Cannot walk or perform other necessary daily activities.
  • Cannot wear shoes, even comfortable ones, without pain.
  • Cannot bend or straighten out your big toe.
  • Have constant swelling in your big toe.
  • Experience no improvement in your symptoms after taking prescription strength nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve).
  • Notice that your big toe has started to slant toward your other toes.
