A bunion is a foot deformity (a lump) that permanently alters the actual physical shape of the foot causing the big toe to turn inward towards the second toe. This leads to a visual alteration of the foot, pain and inflammation. A bunion is caused by flat foot syndrome, incorrect footwear, joint damage, arthritis, and genetic disposition.

When should you consider having bunion surgery? The best in class NYC foot surgeon uses the following criteria as a guideline when determining if bunion surgery is necessary:

  • It is confirmed that you have a bunion – with progressive arthritis that has been confirmed by clinical exam and x-rays.
  • You feel that you have exhausted all conservative care in attempting to treat your bunion.
  • You are a professional athlete / dancer and the bunion is interfering with your performance.
  • The bunion interferes with your daily activities.
  • You have pain inside the joint.
  • You are having problems finding shoes that fit (and / or that don’t aggravate your bunion).
  • Aesthetically you are displeased of the appearance of your bunion(s).
  • You have exhausted non-surgical bunion treatments and still have pain.

There are more than 100 different ways that a foot surgeon can perform bunion surgery. The best bunion surgery procedure for one person is not necessarily the best option for another. Some procedures allow you to walk much sooner meaning you may not have to use crutches. Depending on your foot type the procedure can have a greater risk for return of the bunion deformity. Other procedures may require you to be on crutches for a few weeks – but may offer a better long-term result. Doctor Stuart Mogul will thoughtfully evaluate your case and lifestyle and present you with the best surgical options for you.
