It’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 bunions can 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.

Your Top-Rated Podiatrist in the Dallas & Fort Worth Metroplex
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
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 foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
