Bunion Surgery & Running

I have been "nursing" a bunion for about 2 years. I can tell that it is getting progressively worse, and that it will just be a matter of time until I need to have surgery. I recently had a bone scan which showed degenerative changes at the base of my great toe on the side where the bunion is at. My concern is how long will it be until I can run again and who should I have do the surgery--a podiatrist or and orthopaedic surgeon. I am an OR nurse but when it comes to my own body I'm indecisive as to what route to take. Any suggestions? Thanks!
