Abstract

Complications with hallux valgus surgery can manifest in a variety of ways, but ultimately preventing them depends on the surgeon's expertise in patient and procedural selection, ability to perform the surgery selected, and knowledge in dealing with postoperative care and complications if present. In this article, the authors discuss common diagnostic and treatment dilemmas when dealing with recurrent hallux valgus, hallux varus, malunion, and avascular necrosis following bunion surgery.
