Opting for bunion surgery is a major decision, and often is the result of suffering from painful bunions for an extended period of time. When undergoing bunion surgery, you should factor in the recovery period and, perhaps more importantly, how to continue your daily routine during your recovery.
Dr. Kamran Jamshidinia, Director of the Bunion Surgery Center of Excellence, recommends that patients wait six to eight weeks between bunion surgeries to allow a full and successful recovery from a bunionectomy, instead of having a bunionectomy on both feet at the same time.

Bunionectomy on Two Feet at the Same Time
As an expert bunion surgeon in Los Angeles, Dr. Jamshidinia recommends that patients do not undergo a bunionectomy on both feet at the same time, and advises waiting six to eight weeks between bunion surgeries to allow a full and successful recovery.
Because bunion anatomy is unique to each patient, it is important to speak with your podiatrist when your bunions first develop. Dr. Jamshidinia specializes in the minimally-invasive treatment of bunions and can help determine the best course of treatment.
Recovery from Bunion Surgery
The time needed for recovery from bunion surgery varies from patient to patient, depending on the size and severity of the bunion or bunions.
During your recovery, it is important that you have:
- A good support network – Make sure you have a good social support network of family and friends who can help out during your recovery.
- Job and schedule flexibility – Having to be off your feet during recovery means you need to have a schedule that allows you flexibility. Most employers are willing to work with employees who undergo buinonectomies, and you may be able to work from home or find a compromise where you can be on your feet less. It is important to discuss your surgery plans with your employer prior to preparing for the procedure.
Dr. Jamshidinia is a world-renowned bunion specialist who performs the most minimally-invasive procedures, which require the least amount of recovery time possible.
