Bunion Surgery

A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place. This causes the tip of your big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forces the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore.

Wearing tight, narrow shoes might cause bunions or make them worse. Bunions can also develop as a result of the shape of your foot, a foot deformity or a medical condition, such as arthritis.

Smaller bunions (bunionettes) can develop on the joint of your little toe.

Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of a bunion include:

* A bulging bump on the outside of the base of your big toe

* Swelling, redness or soreness around your big toe joint

* Corns or calluses — these often develop where the first and second toes rub against each other

* Ongoing pain or pain that comes and goes

* Limited movement of your big toe
