About Bunion Surgery
Bunions (also known as Hallux Valgus) are bone deformities that can only be corrected with surgical intervention. They may or may not be painful, but may grow bigger in size, with time. Bunions are not known to regress without surgery but not everyone with bunions needs to go under the knife. The surgery may not be required if the bone deformity is not causing you pain, discomfort, or making it difficult for you to do what you need to or want to do.
The bunion correction procedure depends on the type of deformity; whether it’s a repeat bunion, the age of the patient and other conditions that the patient may have, like arthritis. Hence, there are various types of bunionectomies like Austin, Reverdin-Green, Kalish-Austin etc., named after surgeons who specialized on a particular ‘bone cut.’
The bone that is jutting out is sawed and re-aligned. In some types of bunion surgery, screws and plates are used to hold the surface together until healing is complete.
After Bunionectomy in Mexico
Although bunion surgery is an outpatient procedure (that is, usually no stay at the hospital is required), it will take considerable time for the bone joint to completely heal.
You will not be able to wear a shoe for at least 2-3 months, which is the time required for the bone to heal. It is recommended that you follow the routine of physiotherapy, which will help you get on your feet faster.
