Bunion Removal

I was referred to a podiatrist for a bunion on my right foot. The podiatrist is recommending surgery. The surgery involves removing the bunion along with removing two small bones in my foot. He is going to do a zig zag cut in my bone and said he is going to put two screws in the bone which he will be permanent and not removed. Also, my big toe is essential being cut off and moved over. Does this sound like a normal procedure? I have never had any kind of foot surgery and am nervous about this. It sounds a little drastic to me. What is your opinion?
