When is Bunionectomy Necessary?

A bunionectomy may be recommended in several situations, including:

  • Persistent Pain: Chronic pain that interferes with daily activities and does not respond to conservative treatments such as medications, orthotics, or physical therapy.
  • Severe Deformity: Significant deformity of the big toe that affects the foot’s function and alignment.
  • Difficulty Wearing Shoes: Trouble finding comfortable shoes due to the bunion’s size and shape.
  • Inflammation and Swelling: Ongoing inflammation and swelling that do not improve with conservative treatments.
  • Restricted Movement: Limited movement of the big toe that affects walking and other activities.

Post-surgical Care and Recovery

Recovery from a bunionectomy involves a combination of rest, physical therapy, and follow-up care. Pain and anti-inflammatory medications may be prescribed to manage discomfort immediately after surgery. A physical therapy program begins shortly after surgery to restore strength, flexibility, and range of motion.

Patients are advised to avoid high-impact activities and wear protective footwear to support the healing process. Using assistive devices like crutches or a walking boot may be necessary during the initial recovery period. Regular follow-up appointments with your surgeon are essential to monitor healing and ensure proper alignment and function of the foot.
