Will I need surgery for my bunion?

Bunions vary in their severity, so depending on how bad the bunion is, as well as your lifestyle, surgery is often not required to treat this condition.

In most cases there are more simple solutions available to treat bunions, including using changes of shoes, protective pads and braces or orthotics, to stop the bunion deteriorating further over time.

In more severe cases though we can help by organising an X-ray to assess the severity of the bunion and then help decide if a surgical opinion is warranted.

If surgery is the best treatment option for you, we will help you get the best treatment possible.
