In the case of high-severity bunions, the surgery may require a more substantial cut to the toe bone or even a fusion of the affected bones. Such an instance may require you to wear a low leg cast for 6 to 8 weeks and walk with crutches to avoid placing weight on the foot. You will then be transferred to a walking boot and eventually to a regular shoe.
The entire recovery period typically spans 2 to 3 months. If you are unable to safely use crutches throughout the recovery process, we will supply a walker, wheelchair or personal scooter based on your individual needs.
