Bunion (hallux valgus) surgery

Bunion surgery is an operation to correct a deformity of the joint at the bottom of your big toe. A bunion (clinical name Hallux Valgus) causes a bony lump to form on the side of your foot which can become painful. 

Bunions don’t always initially cause painful symptoms but they can get worse over time, becoming sore or inflamed and they may make it harder for you to find shoes that fit comfortably without pain.

Bunion surgery may be recommended by a Consultant or doctor if your bunion has limited you to wearing specific footwear or you're unable to do the things you want to do without pain.
