Is Bunion Surgery a Guaranteed Fix?

Unfortunately, no medical procedures can ever be 100 percent guaranteed. However, bunion surgery is highly successful and a large majority of patients who choose to undergo it are satisfied with the results, as it can bring substantial relief from pain and significantly improve the appearance of the deformity.

Your odds of lasting success improve even more if you carefully follow your doctor’s instructions for bunion surgery recovery. Depending on the procedure performed, this may involve staying off your feet for a few days or weeks, using crutches, wearing a surgical shoe or brace, and other forms of care. Do not try to put weight on the foot before your doctor gives you the go-ahead. You’ll also need to make adjustments to your footwear—if you go back to wearing the heels or narrow shoes that facilitated the bunion formation in the first place, it is much more likely to recur.

If you’re dealing with persistent bunion pain and all conservative methods have failed, call Foot Doctor of the East Bay at (510) 483-3390 today to schedule an appointment and see if bunion surgery is right for you. We serve San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, and the entire Bay Area with high quality foot and ankle care.
