Bunion Surgery

If you have bunions that haven’t been able to be treated with nonsurgical treatments, surgery can help to alleviate your pain and correct deformities in the foot. Upon getting the bunions taken care of, you will be able to return to your normal daily activities without the previous discomfort. Put a stop to the pain caused by bunions and take the time to schedule your surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you with I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need bunion surgery?

Men and women undergo bunion surgery when facing problems such as:

  • An inability to bend the toe
  • Slight deformity
  • Swelling and inflammation
  • Lack of relief or improvement with anti-inflammatory products

For those who are suffering with severe pain in their foot due to bunions, surgery is one of the most effective options. With bunion surgery, you can go back to participating in normal activities without pain or burning.

How is the bunion procedure performed?

The main goal of having bunion surgery done is to help relieve pain, realign your joints, and correct any toe deformities. Since every situation is different, the procedure used will vary from one patient to another. During your bunion surgery, the surgeon will work to lengthen any tight tendons and shorten any tissues that are loose. Any damaged surfaces of your joints are removed. Plates, wires or screws might need to be inserted to keep your surfaces in place until they have had ample time to heal.

What is recovery like after bunion surgery?

After going home from the hospital, you will need to wear a cast or protective show to keep your foot safe. About two weeks following the procedure, your sutures are going to be removed. A brace will still be needed for six to eight weeks. To promote proper healing, keep the dressings dry and don’t mess with them. Put a plastic bag on the foot whenever you shower.

A cane, walker or crutches should be used for the first few days following bunion surgery. As the wound heals, you can continue putting more and more weight on it. Only walk short distances for a few weeks after the procedure. Most patients are able to return to driving in about a week. For the first few days, make sure your foot is higher than your heart. Ice will help with pain and swelling. It takes about six months for the swelling to go away completely. Make sure you are wearing the right shoes after the dressing has been removed.

Physical therapy is often recommended to help restore movement and strength in the injured foot. Begin the exercises slowly and follow the instructions given by your provider.

How much does bunion surgery cost?

I Need A Surgery can schedule your bunion surgery through the Surgery Center Network for $4,600, versus having to pay $46,000 at your local hospital. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
