Can my bunions grow back after undergoing a Bunionplasty℠?


I have never been a very good patient and at 57 the last thing I want is to have surgery on my feet multiple times. Can my bunions grow back after undergoing a Bunionplasty®?

Recurrence after bunion surgery is a possibility, however, not common – at least in Dr. Blitz’ bunion surgery practice.  When bunions do come back, they re-occur not regrow.  A bunion is not a growth of bone, rather a subluxating big toe joint.  As such, a return of the bunion is return of the joint subluxation.  In my Manhattan foot surgery practice, every patient is evaluated thoroughly and a procedure is selected that best fits the patient.
