3 Signs You Need Bunion Surgery

Signs You Need Bunion SurgeryIt’s easy to put things off until “sometime” in the future, particularly if it’s something a little scary, like surgery. People often would rather put off a problem and only deal with it when they don’t have a choice. Frequently, though, this gives the problem time to get worse. This is usually the case for foot conditions like bunions. Sometimes a bunion surgery is your best option for recovery and pain relief, so recognizing the signs that you need it—and then paying attention to them—can help you get the care you really need.

Bunion surgery is always considered a last resort for treatment. Most bunionscan be successfully cared for using only conservative methods, like shoe changes or custom orthotics. There are, however, times when bunion surgery is best for your feet. Here are a few signs that surgery might be what you need:

  • Pain gets in the way of normal life – You’re not able to wear most shoes, and your joint pain makes normal walking, standing, or simply getting around more difficult for you.
  • Your bunion deformity is getting worse or already severe – Your bunion is getting progressively worse despite foot care, or is already severely deforming your foot.
  • Conservative treatments aren’t helping – You’ve been trying noninvasive treatments for a while now, but they haven’t improved your pain or slowed the progression of the problem.

If any of these situations sound familiar for your own feet, it’s probably time for bunion surgery. The procedure will carefully correct the deformity, alleviating your pain and improving your foot function. It’s much better for your feet to have the surgery in the long run than continuing to suffer as you put off the best option for your condition.

Bunion surgery is never your first choice for treatment, but it can become your best option when conservative methods are not enough. If you think you need bunion surgery, don’t panic and don’t put it off. Let Dallas’ premier bunion specialists help you take care of your feet and eliminate your deformity.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
