#Bunion Surgery #Podiatrist

ask_the_doctorHi Doc: I have bunions. Should I have surgery? I heard it’s very painful & takes forever to heal.

This Orthopedic Chicago Podiatrist located in West Loop 60661,Roscoe Village 60618, Ukranian Village 60622, Elmhurst 60126 & Bartlett 60103 says. In all cases of surgery, benefits must be weighed against the risks. Bunion surgery can be relatively painless & minimally disabling, or can bother you for many months. The surgeon should have several years experience & be Board Certified or Board Qualified. The doctors at the AnkleNFootCenters posses all the qualifications mentioned.
Most of our bunionectomy patients are in gym shoes in around a month. We also use long acting anesthetics & meds to keep the post-op discomfort to a minimum.
A good discussion should happen between you & your doctor & then a decision will be easier.
Good Luck, Hope this Helps!
