What to Expect From Bunion Surgery
- The point of bunion surgery is to correct the bone and joint misalignment that caused the bunion.
Your NYC board certified bunion surgeon will customize the bunion surgery for your unique case. Typically, the bunion surgeon will realign and reset the first metatarsal bone, shave the bone’s outside bone growth, perhaps release the tendon that is pulling the first toe towards the second, and reorganize the soft tissue around the big toe joint. For severe bunions, the surgeon may opt to fuse two bones further back in your foot.
perform bunion surgery under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia. It’s outpatient surgery done at a hospital or surgery center and in some instances in the doctor’s office. The most common bunion surgery is the Austin type procedure, which can fix a majority of bunions and takes just 40 minutes to do by an experienced surgeon.
