Bunion Surgery


Bunion corrective surgery is a common operation that Dr O’Sullivan performs and is usually done with percutaneous technique to realign the hallux MTP joint so that it functions and moves freely while being well aligned and not causing pain. Surgical recovery of this procedure is about 2 months and it is 4 weeks before the patient can drive comfortably. The percutaneous technique means that there is less post-operative pain associated with the procedure but there still is swelling and it still requires protection to avoid displacement of the bony osteotomies.
