Would you reccomend surgery for bunions that are hereditory and nothing else will help? What is the average cost of surgery and what is the recovery period?

I would recomend surgery for bunions that are causing a lot of pain and that are affecting your daily activity. I o not recomend cosmetic surgery on feet
The recovery period is no less then 6-8 weeks up to 6 months and do not under estimate the fact that it is a mojor operation. I would also suggest that you make sure you see an orthopaedic surgeon who has a major interest in the foot and ankle surgery not just any old person.
As far as the cost is concerned i would speak out of turn but the surgeon you see will be able to give you a better idea
