How do I know if I should have my bunions fixed or leave them alone?

There are two lines of thought on this issue. The younger you are, the better your healing potential. You are also less likely to have other medical conditions or arthritis in the joint that can affect the outcome of the surgery. But, there is always that small possibility that you develop a complication after surgery. So, if it is not hurting, leave it alone. I usually suggest waiting until it starts interfering with what a person wants to do.
