Surgery for a bunion may be advised if simple measures, such as well-fitting shoes, simple painkillers and padding do not relieve the discomfort of the bunion. Scarf osteotomy is an operation to correct a severe bunion (hallux valgus) deformity.
During the operation a cut is made between the big and second toes. Through this cut the tight tissues on this side of the big toe are freed. Then a cut is made over the bunion. The big toe joint is opened and the bony lump is removed. The knuckle bone (first metatarsal) is cut through, re-positioned and fixed with two small screws. The soft tissues of the big toe joint are tightened on the inside to correct it.
If you are considering a metatarsal osteotomy , our surgeons can offer a range of advanced treatments. We offer all-inclusive package prices for metatarsal osteotomy (terms and conditions apply).
