How Long is the Recovery Time for Bunion Surgery?


The question we hear from our patients regarding bunion surgery is "how long will my recovery be?" Fortunately, bunion surgery recovery time is most likely much shorter than you've heard or might expect. In best case scenerios, you could be back to work after 3 days. Each case is different and your recovery time will depend on the severity of the bunion. Your doctor will need to see your bunion before yur treatment plan can be made.

If you have a bunion that is causing you pain or interfering with your life, you should see a doctor before the bunion gets even worse. Bunions are progressive problems and will slowly get worse over time. In order to prevent a long recovery from bunion surgery, get treated early.
