Bunion removal is a surgical procedure that corrects a deformed area of the foot near the big toe. Bunion removal is sometimes called a bunionectomy, bunion surgery, or hallux valgus correction. Hallux valgus is a Latin phrase that means “foot deformity.” A Bunion Removal is necessary if nonsurgical treatment methods don’t relieve your pain. Most people with bunions find pain relief with simple treatments to reduce pressure on the big toe, such as wearing wider shoes or using pads in their shoes. However, if these measures do not relieve your symptoms, your doctor may recommend bunion surgery.

What Causes Bunions?
Although they may develop on the fifth (little) toe, bunions usually occur at the base of the big toe. They are often caused by incorrect foot mechanics. The foot may flatten too much, forcing the toe joint to move beyond the normal range. In some cases, joint damage caused by arthritis or an injury produces a bunion. And some people are born with the tendency to develop bunions. If you’re at risk for developing a bunion, wearing high- heeled or poorly fitting shoes makes the problem worse.
Positional (mild) bunions arise from the growth or new bone. STRUCTURAL (severe) bunions result when the joint at the base of the toe shift position. Many bunions are a combination of both types.
