The provider treats a bunion on the side of the foot, a deformity that develops on the first metatarsal bone, the bone in the foot just behind the big toe, which causes the big toe to bend toward the second toe. Treatment is necessary to reduce symptoms, restore function, and correct the deformity. He uses any of a number of corrective procedures to correct the condition. The type of service he performs depends on the underlying cause and the specific procedure performed to correct the underlying problem, such as removal of the bony projection of the bunion, releasing tendons or ligaments, removing additional bone structures, and realigning and stabilizing the surgical site.
