Common questions and concerns about the procedure

1.  What will happen to me on the day of my surgery?
Surgery is usually performed early in the morning. You check into the hospital about 1-1/2 hours before your scheduled surgery. You cannot eat anything from midnight the night before. Surgery usually takes 90 minutes. You are in the recovery room for another hour, then your family may pick you up and take you home.
2.  Will it hurt?
There is little or no discomfort after the surgery - most patients do not even take any pain medication. New forms of physical therapy are utilized to reduce pain and swelling.
3.  Will I have a big scar?
No, our surgeons make a small incision in the side of your big toe when they perform the bunion correction procedure. They utilize a special plastic surgery technique to close the incision so scarring is minimal.
4.  Will I be able to return to the athletic activities I am used to?
Yes, most patients may return to normal activities in approximately three to six weeks.
5.  Will I need to buy new shoes?
No, your shoes did not cause your bunion.
6.  Will the bunion come back?
We have a very high success rate and, in our experience, we have not seen any return. The Tri-Correctional BunionectomySM fixes what initially caused your bunion, the crooked big toe joint. Orthotics are sometimes used to support your foot surgery.
7.  Will I need to use crutches?
Possibly, With severe deformities, the bone needs to be moved over a long distance. Therefore, a modified procedure will be done and crutches will be needed to stay non-weight bearing for 3-6 weeks.
8.  Will my children get bunions?
Possibly, Bunion problems can run in families. You should have your children's feet examined to diagnose any problems early.
