Does everyone need surgery if you have a Bunion?

Not every person that has a bunion needs surgery.  There are patients that have the deformity of hallux valgus or a bunion but are being seen for a different problem.  They have no complaints of pain, redness, swelling or problems with the bunion.  They can do all the activities they want to with no restrictions.  If that is the case, surgery is not needed at this time.

 

If you are suffering from pain in the bunion area, we are here to help.  Come visit us in our Palm Desert office by calling 760-568-0108 or scheduling an appointment online.
