In brief: Podiatric or Ortho

A podiatric surgeon or a orthopedic foot & ankle surgeon perform bunionectomy surgery.
In choosing a surgeon make sure they perform bunion surgery on a regular basis.

In brief: Order or do?

Any doctor can "order" a bunionectomy (actually, request consultation for bunionectomy would be more accurate) but the surgery is performed by podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons.
