A bunionectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a bunion, a bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe. The surgery is typically performed by a podiatrist or foot and ankle surgeon, and involves several steps:
- Anesthesia: The patient will be given anesthesia to numb the foot and prevent pain during the surgery.
- Incision: The surgeon will make an incision near the bunion to access the affected area.
- Removal of the bunion: The surgeon will remove the bony bump and any other damaged tissue or bone.
- Realignment of the toe joint: The surgeon may realign the bones in the big toe joint to correct any deformities.
- Fixation: In some cases, the surgeon may use screws, pins, or wires to hold the bones in place while they heal.
- Closure: The incision will be closed with sutures or staples.
After the surgery, the patient will be monitored for several hours to ensure there are no complications. Pain medication and instructions for caring for the foot will be provided. The patient may need to wear a cast or special shoe for several weeks to protect the foot while it heals. Physical therapy may be recommended to help with recovery.
Bunionectomy is typically reserved for severe or painful bunions that do not respond to conservative treatments. It's important to talk to a healthcare provider or foot and ankle surgeon to determine if this surgery is necessary and to understand the risks and benefits associated with the procedure.
