- Bunion Basics
- For Doctors
Bunion is a complex of problems comprised of one primary condition causing several secondary conditions. If its primary problem can be properly corrected, then all of its secondary problems such as clawed toes, metatarsalgia and bunionette pain can be also resolved spontaneously without additional surgeries such as Akin, Weil and bunionette osteotomies.
“Do no harm” is surgeons’ sworn doctrine because surgery is at best a form of trauma to the body and it can be worse if it is not done properly. Any surgery more or less than necessary can leave undesirable results.
