If initial therapy is ineffective, a return visit to the health care professional is advised. Rethinking the diagnosis and treatment plan with persisting symptoms is in order. This may require a repeat injection of cortisone or a surgical treatment (bunionectomy) with realignment of the deformity. There are a variety of surgical options. The optimal choice of therapies must be customized to the individual patient.
