Bunionectomy at Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center (RASC)

A bunion – that painful, bony bump that forms at the base of your big toe – can make every step a challenge. If you’re struggling with the discomfort and inconvenience of bunions, a bunionectomy at Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center (RASC) might be the solution you're looking for.

Understanding Bunionectomy and the Procedure


Understanding Bunionectomy and the Procedure


A bunionectomy is performed to remove the bunion—the painful, bony bump on the joint at the base of the big toe—and to correct the alignment of the toe's bones.


The procedure is not solely for cosmetic improvement but aims to address the root cause, improving foot function and providing pain relief.


The surgery involves realigning the bone structure, which may include cutting or repositioning bones, tendons, and ligaments to restore normal foot anatomy.

Your Road to Recovery

Your journey to pain-free walking begins long before you step into our surgery center. Your podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon will explain the bunionectomy procedure, ensuring you understand what to expect.

We'll coordinate with your doctor to schedule the surgery at RASC, and you’ll receive detailed preparation instructions to ensure the best possible outcome.

On the day of your bunionectomy, you'll be in the hands of your trusted surgeon, supported by our RASC team. Depending on your specific case, you'll receive local anesthesia (numbing the foot) or sedation.

Through a small incision, your surgeon will remove the bunion and realign your toe. Our state-of-the-art equipment and facilities are designed to support the most effective and least invasive procedures.

Post-surgery, you'll recover in our comfortable surroundings before heading home. There will be some swelling and discomfort, but we'll manage it together with medication and aftercare advice.

We'll provide you with a special surgical shoe or boot to wear, and your surgeon will schedule follow-up visits to ensure you're healing nicely and to decide when you can return to normal shoes.
