Bunion Surgery in India

The symptoms of a bunion are:
- A bulging bump on the outside of the base of your big toe
- Swelling, redness or soreness around your big toe joint
- Thickening of the skin at the base of your big toe
- Corns or calluses — these often develop where the first and second toes overlap
- Persistent or intermittent pain
- Restricted movement of your big toe
Types of Bunions Deformities and treatment
Mild Structural Bunion Deformity
Structural bunions or small Bunion occur when the angle between the first and second long bones and increases to a point where it is greater than normal. This increased angle causes the great toe to abut the second toe. The bump may become red and very sore.
If your bunion deformity is mild, a surgical procedure where the first metatarsal bone cut and moved. Surgical repositioning of the bone reduces the angle between the first and second metatarsal bones. Wire, screw or pin fixation is often used to maintain fixation.
Severe Structural Bunion
It is the large angle between the first and second metatarsal bones.
Treatment involves removing a wedge of bone in order to reposition the first metatarsal bone closer to the second. A pin or screw is used to maintain fixation.

A total joint implant is used. Implants come in many varieties. The above implant represents a total silastic implant. These are flexible one-piece devices with a bending hinge. Other devices include metal and plastic two component implants that attempt to replace the anatomical nature of the joint. Physical therapy is very important after surgery.The range of motion may vary depending on healing and surgical technique as well as implant selection.
The Hallux Osteotomy
When the great toe angles inward toward the other toes, a painful callus can occur. Depending on whether the great toe abuts, under rides or over rides the second toe, various problems can occur. These include hammertoe formation of the second toe and painful corns.
