A bunion, also called a hallux valgus, is an enlargement of bone or soft tissues around the joint at the base of the big toe that results in the formation of a bump. The bone that joins the big toe with the first metatarsal bone thickens and enlarges, tightening the tendons, which in turn causes the base of the big toe to angle out resulting in a painful bony deformity.
Reconstructive surgery is a procedure wherein injured areas or defects are corrected by using flaps of tissue, skin, boneor metalwork, along with underlying blood vessels or muscle to rebuild the damaged tissues. Reconstructive surgeries on the upper and lowerlimb are performed to improve the structural, functional and cosmetic outcome of injured limbs. The upper limb includes all the structures from the fingertips to the neck along with the nerves that control the arms. The lower limb includes the hip, thigh, leg and foot. Reconstruction of these structures can avoid amputation or shortening of limbs, and prevents many complex defects that result from injuries.
Foot reconstruction is a surgery performed to correct the structures of the foot and restore the natural functionality of the foot that has been lost due to injury or illness.
