Hallux treatment

Treatment of bunions in Medi Horizon Clinic

Hallux, commonly referred to as hallux valgus toe, is a condition that affects many people, regardless of gender and age. The deformity involves a deviation of the big toe, while in various cases it can even overlap the other toes. Hallux valgus initially does not cause pain, only at a later stage of the development does the pain appear. Hallux valgus particularly affects people with a family history of such condition. There are many methods available on the market to combat them, but no less effective treatment is hallux correction performed by an orthopedist. It is important to remember that the deformity of the hallux valgus toe can cause other conditions, so prompt diagnosis and treatment is very important

Hallux valgus surgery is performed under subarachnoid (lower lumbar) or general anesthesia and usually takes about 2h. On the day of surgery, the patient is given a full antibiotic cover and thromboprophylaxis is administered.
