Outcomes and complications of bunion surgery

Variations among toe-joint deformities and surgical techniques make it difficult to evaluate the results of bunion surgery. Some studies suggest that 85% to 90% of patients are satisfied with their results, but one review found that about a third of patients were dissatisfied even when their pain and toe alignment improved.

The problem may be unrealistic expectations. Some patients mistakenly believe that after surgery, the big toe will be completely straight and the foot will fit into narrower shoes. (“We can’t make the foot or bunion area perfect; we can make it better,” says Dr. James P. Ioli, chief of podiatry at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.) Patients may also expect faster relief from pain and swelling than the procedure allows.
