Surgery for Bunions and Bunion Surgery Complications

If a bunion is affecting your quality of life, consultation with a foot specialist is recommended. Persisting pains and deformity from bunions can be cured with surgical operations. The exact types of surgical correction of bunions vary depending on the structural severity of the deformity. No one type of procedure can correct all bunions.

Potential risks of surgery include but are not limited to infection, over/under-correction, delayed healing, nerve entrapment, irritating scar tissue formation, and joint stiffness.
