Understanding Bunion Surgery

A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe, causing the big toe to lean towards the other toes. This can lead to pain, redness, and swelling. Bunion surgery is recommended for those who experience significant pain and discomfort, and conservative treatments like shoes modification and pain relievers have been ineffective. However, patients should be aware that potential risks of the surgery include infection, nerve damage, and recurrence of the bunion.

Preparing for Bunion Surgery

To prepare for bunion surgery, a complete medical evaluation, including a physical exam and imaging studies such as x-ray, might be necessary. Patients may also be asked to stop taking certain medications, refrain from eating or drinking before the surgery, and arrange for someone to help during the initial recovery phase.

Bunion Surgery Procedure

The exact procedure for bunion surgery depends on the severity of the bunion. The surgeon might remove the bunion and realign the bones, tendons, and ligaments in the foot. This can be done through an open incision or a minimally invasive technique known as percutaneous surgery.

Bunion Surgery Recovery

Following the bunion surgery, patients will need to rest and avoid putting weight on the foot for some time. They might also wear a surgical boot or cast and use crutches. A course of physical therapy may be recommended to regain mobility and strength. The full recovery time varies but generally spans a few weeks to a few months.

The Costs of Bunion Surgery

The cost of bunion surgery in Thailand can range from $2,500 to $4,500. Remember that this does not include additional costs like travel and accommodation expenses, and the final price can depend on the specific healthcare provider and the complexity of the surgery.
