Surgery for Bunion

Surgery for bunion corrects deformities and relieves pain caused by bunions. It is performed on the great toe, which is the joint between your big toe and your second toe.

Surgery for Bunion

Surgery for Bunion typically entails making an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and removing or realigning soft tissue and bone. This is done to relieve pain and restore normal joint alignment.

Appropriate surgical treatment of a bunion is based on a thorough evaluation and discussion of the patient's needs. In this case, procedures designed for a 16-year-old are frequently inappropriate for an elderly person, and vice versa. Also, the surgical procedure and aftercare will be carefully tailored to each patient and team member at Feldman and Leavitt Foot & Ankle Specialist.


Hallux Abducto valgus (other name for Bunion) can only be removed surgically once they have developed into a concern. Surgery may be an option if your current nonsurgical therapies have failed or are losing their effectiveness and the pain is starting to interfere with your ability to carry out everyday tasks.

 As a general rule, surgical bunion procedures are perform on an out-patient basis in an Alberta Health Services (AHS) approve Surgical Center or in a Hospital. Surgical procedural costs are covered by AHS or the patient may option for private surgery to avoid a waiting time. A visit to Feldman Foot And Ankle Specialists will CLEARLY define all available patient options.
