We would like to reference a great article on conservative treatment for Bunions. Also we have a nice video that we created on both the conservative and surgical treatment of bunion deformities. Dr. Saffer and Dr. Brown are both board certified foot surgeons but take an aggressive conservative approach to bunion deformities. Sometimes simple changes in shoe gear and activity can decrease symptoms.
If surgery is needed that Bunion surgery is one of the most common foot surgeries performed by our foot specialists. The procedure is typically outpatient surgery and takes less than an hour to perform. Our foot surgeons follow patients very closely during the postoperative time frame which takes about 6-8 weeks to heal. Most patients during that time can weight bear in either a walking boot or surgical shoe.
Please look below at one article and one video on conservative and surgical treatment options for bunion deformities.
