Bunion removal Surgery

Table of content
In an osteotomy, your surgeon will cut your big toe joint and realign it to a normal position. In an exostectomy, your surgeon will remove your bunion from the joint without performing an alignment. In an arthrodesis, your surgeon will replace the damaged joint with screws or metal plates to correct the deformity.
The whole process can take anywhere from 45 min to 3 hours depending on the severity of the bunion and what needs to be performed to correct it.
Usually, you will get your stitches out about two weeks after surgery. However, it takes about six to 12 weeks for your bones to heal. You will likely have to wear a protective shoe or boot.
After bunion surgery, you may have some of these: Fever of 100.4°F (38°C) or higher, or as directed by your healthcare provider. Redness, swelling, bleeding, or other drainage from the incision site. Increased pain around the incision site. Swelling in the lower leg of the affected foot.
