bunion bone surgery
Bunion bone surgery, also known as bunionectomy, is a surgical procedure that is used to correct the alignment of the big toe joint and remove the bony protrusion that causes a bunion. There are several different types of bunion surgery, including bone cut procedures (osteotomy) and bone realignment procedures (arthrodesis). Recovery time and the type of procedure will depend on the severity of the bunion and the type of surgery performed. Generally speaking, patients can expect to wear a cast or boot for several weeks after the surgery, and it may take several months for the foot to fully heal. Physical therapy may also be prescribed to help regain strength and range of motion in the foot.
