These are just a few frequently asked questions about bunion surgery:

Why do I need bunion surgery?

Bunion surgery is often recommended if your bunion has grown large, has a substantial degree of bone involvement, and is very painful. Bunion pain can interfere with your ability to put on shoes, enjoy activities, and stand and walk.

How do I prepare for bunion surgery?

Before your surgery, you need to:

  • Avoid eating or drinking after midnight
  • Thoroughly wash your feet the night before and the morning of the surgery
  • Bring someone with you who can drive you home after surgery

You also need to prepare for life right after the surgery, when you might not be walking around. Remember to:

  • Remove any objects from the floor you can trip over
  • Buy easy, convenient meals that you can prepare yourself
  • Ask for help and support from family members and friends

Will I stay in the hospital after bunion surgery?

Most bunion surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with no hospital stay.

What is bunion surgery recovery like?

  • You may need crutches or other assistive devices after surgery.
  • You will need to keep your feet dry for about 2 weeks, until after the sutures are removed.
  • To aid in recovery, your podiatrist may recommend stretching, exercises, and physical therapy.
  • 3 to 4 weeks after surgery, you may be able to begin wearing a wide athletic shoe.
  • 5 weeks after surgery, you should try to walk short distances and do some mild exercises.

These are just a few of the frequently asked questions and answers about bunion surgery.
