You have questions. We have answers.

If you think you might have a bunion, the first step is to consult a podiatrist or other foot and ankle specialist. They can evaluate your feet, assess the severity of your bunion(s), and provide treatment recommendations. They may suggest non-surgical options first, or they may recommend surgery. In addition to performing that evaluation and recommendation, providers who receive our training are qualified to determine whether you’re a candidate for the Bunionplasty® procedure itself. Learn more about the procedure.

As with any surgical procedure, the cost of minimally invasive bunion surgery can vary widely depending on several factors – your geographic location, the surgeon and their practice, and the outpatient surgical center or hospital facility. Any costs you may incur will depend on your health insurance policy and the specifics of your medical condition(s). To get the most accurate information, always consult with your provider and your insurance company for a more accurate estimate. Learn more.

Only you and your podiatrist or surgeon can determine the best time for you to have bunion repair surgery. Factors like your age, the severity of your bunion or bunions, your level and types of physical activity, other foot and ankle conditions like hammertoes, other health conditions that may impact your surgery and healing, etc. Some people may choose to correct bunions while they’re mild, while others may prefer to wait. Hear from other patients like you.

Recovery from bunion surgery depends on factors like the severity of the bunion(s), the patient’s age and other medical factors, whether other foot and ankle procedures are performed at the same time, how closely the patient is able to adhere to post-op instructions, and other variables. With the Bunionplasty® 360 Bunion Repair™ procedure, a patient might be able to walk the same day as their surgery, with their surgeon’s permission. At around six weeks, many patients return to walking in sneakers for longer periods. By two months, most patients are back to full recreation and their favorite footwear. Learn more.

Many patients travel a significant distance to have bunion surgery, either driving to see their surgeon or flying in from another city or country. Because bunion surgery can have a major impact on quality of life, patients often seek a surgeon who is not only an expert in bunion repair, but someone they feel personally comfortable with, who they trust to guide them in making major medical decisions. Find the bunion doctor for you.
