Is Bunion Surgery Right For You?
Here at Family Foot Care & Surgery, we always aim to use conservative treatment options whenever possible. And that’s why we provide many non-surgical methods that (more often than not) are able to successfully address annoying and even painful foot and ankle symptoms, including those brought about by bunions.
But what if you have tried “everything under the sun” and nothing seems to work? What if your bunion just keeps getting worse despite all changes in footwear, night splinting, padding and all?
Well, we are also proud to offer a wide array of foot surgeries right here at our office, as well!
The truth is when it comes to bunions, there are certainly conservative measures you can take that may be able to address the symptoms caused by these common toe deformities. But the only way to truly correct the problem is through bunion surgery.
So you can think of non-invasive bunion remedies as a way to mask the problem, and ideally slow the rate at which it gets worse. This can delay the need for surgery, but the underlying condition is still present and will likely need to be addressed eventually.
And if you have been wondering if bunion surgery is the best choice for you, then you have come to the right place – we are going to take a look at the most common surgical procedures available to correct bunions and what recovery looks like. Though it’s important to keep in mind that the most likely candidates are patients who suffer from intense pain and/or have restricted mobility.
If your bunion is mild and not causing major difficulties, this treatment method is likely not for you. (The only way to find out for sure, though, is by coming to our office for a better evaluation.)
