In brief: Bunion surgery.

Unfortunately, there are no braces or exercises to get rid of a bunion.
If you elect to have it surgically removed, there are several ways your surgeon could go about it. Depending on the angle of your bones (you'll need an x-ray), there are many different procedures to choose from to correct your foot.

In brief: Yes

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.
