Bunions are bone growths on the outside of the big toe that are caused when the bone moves towards the second toe. If left untreated, bunions can cause a host of other foot problems, including hammertoes, calluses, and arch problems.
This video from Pre-Op.com gives you a detailed overview of the entire bunion surgical process, including before, during, and after surgery. Pain management options for post-surgical pain are also discussed. While bunion surgery is not always required, choosing to live with the discomfort can eventually affect your ability to walk.
