Bunion surgery is a medical procedure used to deal with bunions on feet.
Foot bunion should not be confused with other common foot problems such as foot corn, hammer toe or plantar fasciitis. Foot bunion (hallux valgus) is a condition, where bone or joints of big toe grow abnormally as a result of improper shoes and pressure put on the big toe. Resulting foot pain makes people seek bunion treatment. Nevertheless, bunion surgery is not always necessary. Bunion treatment without surgery is possible in the early stages of foot bunion and may lead to a total bunion relief.

Bunion Surgery Candidates
