Bunion surgery, also known as bunionectomy, or hallux valgus surgery, is an orthopaedic surgery that restores normal alignment to the big toe joint.
Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/17/2016 -- Because of the high cost of the surgery, many UK patients are looking at options for bunion surgery abroad. "I was looking for bunion relief without surgery, and there are some options available but they are all very short-term, and even though you can relieve the discomfort and pain, problems with finding and wearing shoes remain. I chose bunion surgery abroad and now, 7+months later, I regret that I have not made this decision earlier. My surgery went perfectly well, and the recovery was easy and painless. I am very thankful to the surgeon and everyone at the hospital - all the staff was amazing." - says Christine Taylor from Birmingham, UK.
"Our patients can leave the hospital on the next day in most cases. For patients from other countries we recommend to stay at the hospital for 2 days after the surgery and not rush to fly back too soon. Still, this would usually only take a few days which is why many patients from the UK would choose to come to Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius for the surgery, and cut the costs dramatically even with the travel expenses included." - says AJ.
Recovery period for bunion surgery is 6 to 8 weeks, however it may take longer for some patients to fully get back to their daily activities.
