Bunion

A bunion is a bony deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe.

A bunion develops as a result of a condition called hallux valgus, which causes your big toe joint to bend towards the other toes and become deformed. If symptoms carry on over a long period, your toe may need to be surgically corrected.

If you are concerned about severe or persistent pain caused by a bunion you should speak to your GP. You can ask to see one of our Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeons privately without any long delays.

Our Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons specialises in diagnosing and treating symptoms caused by bunion and offer a range of non-surgical and surgical treatments, including:

  • Orthotics
  • Bunion surgery
  • Minimally invasive bunion surgery (for mild deformities)

The most suitable type of treatment for you will be discussed at your appointments with your surgeon.
