Re: Cheilectomy or fusion and Bunionectomy

As a podiatrist, I should point out that sometimes we look at things differently than an orthopedist does.

Since I can not see your foot or x-rays, I can not say for sure. If your description of this problem is as wrote wrote, fusing this joint would not be my first choice.

I highly recommend you get a copy of your x-rays and get another opinion from a podiatrist.

As far as doing one foot at a time, I believe that is personal preference.

Worn daily for a few minutes to several hours, the night splint, over time has been clinically proven to reduce the pain and discomfort of plantar fasciitis and other overuse injuries of the lower leg.
