Bunion Surgery
Mar 25, 2009
I had bunion and hammer toe surgery with a screw placement in the joint to prevent future bunions. Does the screw also align the big toe? There is a "gap" between the first and second toe. I had both feet done and the other foot does not have a gap. The x-ray's show that the foot with the gap - the screw was on an angle. The foot without the gap - the screw was straight. Did the angle of the screw cause the gap? I was told the screw does not align the toe. I'm not completely convinced. Your advice is appreciated.
