Bunion surgery in France

A bunion is a common deformity of the joint at the bottom of the big toe which causes a bony lump to form on the side of the foot. The lump can be painful, particularly when walking or wearing shoes. Non-surgical remedies such as insoles, toe spacers and toe supports can help, but in cases where the bunion has become very painful and is impacting on everyday life, surgery is the only treatment.

Dr Lintz offers modern surgical techniques to correct bunions. Treatment is always tailored to the individual and the surgery is generally carried out as a day-case operation under local anaesthetic with immediate weight bearing.
