Surgery should only be considered if all non-surgical measures have been explored and if symptoms are significant. Bunion and/or lesser toe surgery is not just a cosmetic procedure and you could be swapping a deformed PAINLESS foot for a PAINFUL cosmetically pleasing foot.
Greater understanding of the many complex components of hallux valgus and lesser toe deformities has led to more patient-specific surgery. Fixation with screws has significantly decreased pain in the post-operative period. Patients no longer need to be in a plaster cast for six weeks following surgery and can mobilise straight away in a wedge shoe.
The big toe deformity Hallux valgus is commonly called "a bunion".
Sharing the pressure with the ball of the foot and big toe, small toes are essencial in walking.
