Bunions
 
 
 


 
Bunions are misaligned big toe joints that can become swollen and tender, causing the first joint of the big toe to slant outward, and the second joint to angle toward the other toes. Bunions tend to be hereditary, but can be aggravated by shoes that are too narrow in the forefoot and toe. Surgery by a podiatric physician is frequently recommended to correct the problem.

Bunion Surgery

The physicians at the Foot and Ankle Center of NJ are experts in repair of bunion deformities. The procedure is performed in the hospital or surgery center under intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. The procedure takes approximately 40 minutes to perform. Post operatively, you will be discharged to home 1-2 hours after the procedure. The doctor will prescribe both anti-inflammatory and pain medication to be taken post operatively to keep you comfortable. Most patients have little discomfort after the procedure which is sufficiently controlled by the prescribed medications. Our physicians have performed thousands of these procedures. In fact, they lecture and teach their techniques to other colleagues, residents, and students. They use the most advanced techniques for the repair which provides the patient with a superior functional as well as cosmetic result. There are several types of bunion procedures which are selected base on the degree of your condition. The doctors will explain the procedure selection, risks, potential complications, and post operative course in detail during your evaluation.
