In this episode we took a deep dive into hallux valgus with two consultants; podiatric surgeon Mr Ian Reilly (Ian Reilly) and orthopaedic surgeon Mr David Gordon (The Bunion Doctor). They shared how they perform a clinical work up for a bunion, along with the answers they give to to the most common patient questions (What is a bunion? What causes bunions? Will it get worse and over what time period?) They each perform hundreds of operations a year, but differ in their approach to this (open surgery Vs minimally invasive/keyhole) so we discussed this, along with some of the most common non-surgical management options for bunions as well. Hope you enjoy.
