After Bunion Clinical Picture and Radiograph
The clinical picture on the left is 12 weeks after surgery. The surgical scar will continue to remodel for up to a year after surgery, becoming thinner and lest noticeable.
The picture on the right is the postoperative radiograph showing realignment and internal screw fixation. This patient had a "Long Arm Austin" Bunionectomy. This longer arm allows for correction of more severe bunions. The procedure usually requires two screws to fixate, as seen above.
