Has anyone every run marathons after having had a bunionectomy?

Yes. Once the area is well healed and your doctor determines that it is safe for you to return to running.
Yes! I have several patients who have continued a very active lifestyle after a bunionectomy, including running a marathon.
Yes. Having a bunionectomy does not mean you can no longer run. Many athletes return to running and sports activity following bunion surgery that has been performed by a board certified foot surgeon. Make sure your surgeon performs bunionectomies on a regular basis and you'll be in good hands if you decide to have the surgery.
