The Northeast Foot and Ankle Approach to Bunion Correction

At Northeast Foot and Ankle, we understand the apprehension surrounding bunion correction surgery. That’s why we take pride in being transparent, honest, and supportive throughout the entire surgical journey. Our mission is to ensure that you are well informed, comfortable, and confident every step of the way.

Let’s dive into the key aspects of bunion surgery, addressing common concerns and providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision.

Understanding Bunion Surgery

Bunion surgery is a straightforward outpatient procedure that takes place in the operating room. You’ll receive sedation anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the surgery, and your foot will be numbed with local anesthesia. Our skilled doctors will then proceed to correct your bunion. It’s worth noting that various bunion correction methods are available, and we’ll work closely with you to determine the most suitable option.

Following the procedure, you’ll spend a brief period in the recovery room before being discharged to begin your recovery journey at home. Depending on the specific procedure you undergo, you may be allowed to bear weight on your foot while wearing a surgical boot, or you might require crutches.

Important Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Bunion Surgery

Before embarking on your bunion surgery, it’s crucial to have open and honest discussions with your healthcare provider. Here are some questions to consider:

1. What is the exact procedure you’ll be performing?
2. What is the expected recovery period?
3. What limitations should I anticipate after surgery?
4. When can I expect to get back into my regular shoes?
5. When can I resume physical activities?
6. Will I be able to drive post-surgery?
7. When can I return to work, and are there any work-related restrictions?
8. What do other patients typically experience after bunion surgery?
9. What can I expect in terms of post-surgery pain and discomfort?

These questions are essential to ensure you comprehensively understand what to expect during and after bunion surgery. Your healthcare provider will be more than happy to address each of these concerns, helping you feel more at ease about the procedure.
