  • Facing Bunion Surgery? Here's What To Expect

    15 November 2014

    If your bunion causes you a lot of pain, your podiatrist may recommend surgery. Surgery is usually left as a last resort when changing the type of shoes you wear and using orthotics doesn't help. Bunion surgery is performed on the joint in your big toe. During the procedure, the doctor removes damaged tissue and realigns your toe. The end result is a reduction of pain and a return to normal physical activities.
