Either or: Conservative treatment options include shoes with more room for the toes, local shoe stretching and padding of the bunions. These measures provide comfort and may be suitable for some. If these measures fail, surgery can provide longterm relief and correct the deformity. There is no one bunion surgery, and depending how severe the bunion is can be involved. Talk to an experienced foot surgeon.

Sugical management: Various surgical procedures are available to treat hallux valgus depending on the type and severity of the deformity. The procedures are designed to correct abnormalities of soft tissues, remove the prominent “bump” of bone, correct the changes in the bony structures, and to realign the big toe and associated structures. The goal of surgery is to reduce pain and improve function.
