Top Signs You Need Bunion Removal Surgery

Bunion pain is severe and interferes with daily activities.

When bunion pain is severe and affects activities such as walking, standing or exercising, surgery may be necessary to alleviate the pain.

Conservative treatments have failed.

When non-surgical treatments such as shoe inserts, physical therapy, or medication have failed to provide relief or prevent the worsening of the bunion, surgery may be necessary.

Foot deformity is severe.

If the bunion deformity is severe and causes a significant shift in the alignment of the foot or toes, surgery may be necessary. Surgery may be the only solution to correcting the deformity and preventing further complications.

There is a risk of further health complications.

In some cases, bunion surgery may be necessary to prevent or address complications such as chronic pain, nerve damage, or arthritis.
