Happy Monday guys! I think many of us know someone who has dealt with bunions or perhaps you, yourself, have had the displeasure of experiencing one. Bunions form when your toes are squeezed together causing the joint of the big toe to increase in size which can be very painful. While they won’t disappear on their own, some people can change their shoe style, use inserts or little wraps to help relieve the pain but others have to resort to surgery. In today’s video a doctor is teaching some residents while performing a bunionectomy. The patient’s foot is already open and you can see the bony bunion sticking out. The doc walks us through the procedure as he files it down. These particular surgeries actually take a long time to heal as you’re looking at about 6 months to fully recover. Stay away from tight shoes everyone!
