BUNION SURGERY DISCUSSED BY TORONTO CHIROPODIST

THE ONTARIO COLLEGE OF CHIROPODISTS OF ONTARIO SENT OUT A SURVEY TO THE GENERAL MEMBERSHIP OF ABOUT 60 ONTARIO PODIATRISTS AND OVER 500 CHIROPODISTS REGARDING THE PERCENTAGE OF PATIENTS THAT REQUIRED BONE SURGERY AND THE RESULTS INDICATED ABOUT 4%.  SO FAR IN MY WIFE'S 11 YEARS OF PRACTICE SHE HAS ONLY REFERRED ONE DIABETIC PATIENT FOR BUNION SURGERY DUE TO HIS CONSTANT ULCERATION FROM THE PRESSURE IT CREATED.

 MANY TIMES THIS SURGERY IS PERFORMED FOR COSMETIC REASONS ONLY AND THIS IS NOT RIGHT.  WE HAVE HAD MANY ASYMPTOMATIC PATIENTS GO FOR BUNION SURGERY FOR COSMETIC REASONS ONLY TO END UP WITH CHRONIC PAIN AND COMPLICATIONS.  MANY TIMES WITH A RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTION ALSO.  WE NEVER EVER SUGGEST THAT A PATIENT HAVE SURGERY ON AN ASYMTOMATIC BUNION.  THERE IS ACTUALLY ONE TORONTO PODIATRIST WHICH SHAVES PORTIONS OF YOUR TOES OFF SURGICALLY SO THAT THEY WILL FIT INTO HIGH HEELS.  THE EDITOR OF THE ARTICLE OF THE NATION POST PREFACED THE ARTICLE WITH HE QUOTE " HAVE WE LOST OUR MINDS?"  WE WOULD NEVER EVER CONSIDER SUCH A BIZARRE OPERATION AND WE ALWAYS TELL OUR PATIENTS TO AVOID HIGH HEELS AS THEY ARE THE WORST THING FOR YOUR FEET AND POSTURE.
