Bunions Case Study
60 y/o male with a painful bunion that we allowed to get worse over several decades. Postoperatively these conditions are weightbearing day one in a boot with crutches for 6 wks, Able to get wet and wash the foot after 2 wks. If the patient is able to have a sit-down position he would be able to return to work in 2 weeks but if not 8 weeks return to work with no restrictions. We see minimal complications if the patient follows our 8-week protocol.
