Bunions, also known as hallux valgus, are a quite common deformity of the foot, which is a bony protrusion at the base of the big toe. The condition which is usually the big toe deviating towards the other toes, thus, it becomes painful, swollen, red, and difficult to wear shoes comfortably. Although the real reason behind bunions is still unknown, some of the factors that can cause the bunions are genetic predisposition, wearing tight or ill-fitting shoes, and some foot conditions such as arthritis.

The so-called traditional bunion surgery, which is also called open bunionectomy, is based on the fact that a large incision is made on the side of the foot to get to the bony prominence. Although this method has been successful in treating bunions, it has some disadvantages like longer healing times, more pain during the postoperative period, and a higher chance of getting infections and stiffness.

The contrary view is that the alternative to the traditional bunion surgery is a minimally invasive bunion surgery which is a less invasive procedure and the advantages of which are numerous. Rather than a big cut, the surgeon creates a few small keyhole incisions which allow him to reach the bunion using the appropriate instruments. This technique is useful as it reduces soft tissue damage, lowers postoperative discomfort, speeds up recovery, and also results in minimum scarring in comparison with traditional surgery.

Bunion surgery is usually done with local or general anesthesia, which is to be chosen by the patient or decided according to the procedure’s complexity. The following steps provide an overview of the surgical process:

  • Preoperative Evaluation: The patient, before the surgery, goes through a complete checkup to find out the severity of the bunion deformity. The first step in the process is the collection of medical history, a physical examination, and the use of imaging studies such as X-rays or MRI scans.
  • Anesthesia: The patient, after being in the operating room, gets anesthesia which makes him/her comfortable throughout the whole procedure. The application of local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia is possible, according to the patient’s needs and the surgeon’s advice.
  • Incision and Bone Realignment: The surgeon makes little cuts all around the bunion place to reach the underlying bone. Specialized tools are at that point used to meticulously rehearse the bone thus straightening the deformity. Any superfluous bone or soft tissue that could be removed is removed to attain perfect alignment.
  • Fixation: In some cases, screws, pins, or plates may be utilized to stabilize the reset bone and thus enable the bone to heal properly. By keeping the bone in the proper alignment, these internal fixation devices make sure that the healing process is in the correct direction and thus the risk of recurrence is reduced.
  • Closure: After the bone is realigned and the fracture has been stabilized, the incisions are sealed by sutures or surgical adhesive. This phase is thus aimed at healthy wound healing and the lessening of the chances of infections.

The principal advantage of minimally invasive bunion surgery is the shorter recovery time which is less than that of traditional open surgery. Patients can put weight on the operated foot in a few days, and they can resume their normal activities, including work and light exercise, in a few weeks. However, it’s essential to follow postoperative instructions provided by the surgeon, which may include:

  • The act of lifting the foot to decrease swelling is the final idea to take away.
  • Use a supportive shoe while engaging in athletic activities such as hiking or skiing.
  • Soft stretching activities to increase flexibility.
  • Avoiding high-impact activities or being on your feet for a few weeks.

A reminder that the recovery period of each patient may differ due to health, size of the bunion deformity, and obedience to the postoperative care instructions is a must.
