Bunionettes can be managed with conservative measures at first. Wearing shoes with a wide toe box, using bunionette pads to prevent sores, and resting and icing the foot as necessary will get you by for a while. However, bunionettes do not get better on their own.
If your bunionette continues to give you pain, then surgery may be needed to realign the little toe’s bone so that it does not point outward. Minimally invasive AMI-BUNIONETTE® Bunionette Surgery involves making a very small incision to make this correction.
The surgery is usually an outpatient procedure and results in little if any scar tissue on the outside or swelling on the inside. You should be back on your feet very soon after this surgery.
