Is there an alternative to bunion surgery?

Patient: Are there any alternatives for bunion surgery? I have a 12 year old and was told she needed bunion surgery and would hate to put her through the pain if there’s an alternative.

 

 

Doctor: Unfortunately the only proven helpful treatment for a bunion is a surgery to remove it. It is a simple procedure and you neednt worry about it. Anesthesia would be given so the pain will be next to minimum. All the best.
