I have a bunion that was removed twice but both times has returned. If I learn to adapt to my bunion would irreversible damage be done to the joint of my toe?
Bunion surgery recurrence happens in approximately 15% of cases, but the return of the bunion largely depends on the techniques used to correct the bunion in the first place. In our New York City practice, we select the best procedure for your foot. It’s hard to say repeat bunion surgery may result in irreversible damage to the joint. Rather the outcome depends on the extent of pre-existing arthritis of the big toe joint.
