In brief: Yes

Yes bunion correction and hammertoe correction are very common fixable problems.
However if there is any type of chemo therapeutic agents being used presently it would be unlikely due to a decreased immune system. You would have to talk to your oncologist to see if it will be safe right now. Otherwise the surgery would have to be postponed for now. But it would certainly be able to be fixed in the future.
