Bunion surgery

Bunion surgery – which is also called a bunionectomy – is an operation that works to reposition the bones within the front part of your foot when they move out of place.

Often caused by shoes that keep the foot in an incorrect position, inflammatory conditions like arthritis as well as genetics, bunions can be incredibly painful. Bunion surgery helps to relieve this pain, realign the bones and correct the bump that can form on the joint between the bottom of the big toe and the foot bone.

When is bunion surgery recommended?

Bunion surgery is typically recommended in the following situations: 

  • When the pain from a bunion restricts and limits your lifestyle. It may stop you from doing everyday activities or walking for more than a few streets. 
  • When the pain is excessive, regardless of wearing larger or wider shoes, placing protective pads in your shoes or resting your feet. 
  • When your big toe suffers from chronic inflammation and swelling, which doesn’t improve with the correct respite.
  • When you can’t bend or straighten your big toe, or when your big toe is moving across to the smaller toes, with the potential to cross over them.

What are the different types of bunion surgery?

There are many different forms of bunion surgery. A surgeon will work with you to determine the correct operation for you, depending on the size of the bunion and how it has developed overtime. Different types of bunion surgery include:

  • Osteotomy – this is a common form of surgery for bunions. During the operation, the surgeon makes small cuts into the bone in order to reposition the joint. Once aligned, pins, screws or plates are used to stabilise the bone. 
  • Arthrodesis – this is a surgery typically reserved for those with severe bunions. The surgeon removes the affected areas of the big toe joint, and uses screws to hold the bones in place as they heal.  
  • Exostectomy – used in conjunction with an osteotomy, this removes the bump from the toe joint, while the osteotomy works to realign the joint.

When you meet with your surgeon and the correct operation is decided upon, they will talk you through the process, outlining what you need to do before and after the procedure, and what will happen during the surgery too.

Typically, local anaesthesia is used during bunion surgery. They also tend to be day case surgeries, where you go home to rest on the same day as the operation.

For people with a mild or moderate bunion, minimally invasive bunion surgery will always be the best option. Through this keyhole bunion surgery, several small incisions are made to cut and reposition the bone. This surgery is less painful than open surgery, and the recovery time is quicker.

Bunion surgery recovery tips

People often ask about walking after bunion surgery, and how long it takes to completely recover from the operation.

Throughout your bunion surgery recovery, you will be required to attend follow-up appointments with your surgeon. After your operation and during these follow-up appointments, your surgeon will be able to give you the correct advice and recommendations.

Typically, you will be required to rest the affected foot for the first few weeks to reduce swelling. For some people, they will be required to wear a cast for the first month or two months too. After eight weeks, you will then be able to start putting weight onto the foot, usually with the help of crutches.

Following on from advice from your surgeon, you should be able to wear shoes again from around 10 weeks. Your surgeon will also recommend the type of footwear that you should consider wearing going forward.
