• Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists

    Board Certified Foot and Ankle Surgeon & Wound Care Specialist located in Dallas, TX


Bunionectomy, a surgical procedure to remove bunions, is among the specialized treatments offered by Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists. We are a trusted podiatry clinic in the Lakewood area of Dallas, Texas, led by the highly skilled Dr. Patrick Burge. Our team is dedicated to providing personalized, advanced foot and ankle care to our patients.

Understanding Bunionectomy

A bunionectomy involves removing or realigning the soft tissue and bone in your foot to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the toe joint. This surgery is generally considered when non-surgical treatments have failed to alleviate bunion discomfort or when the bunion is severely impacting your quality of life.

Dr. Patrick Burge: Dedicated to Patient-Centric Care

Dr. Burge’s dedication to personalized patient care and his wealth of experience in foot and ankle surgery makes him an ideal choice for your bunionectomy procedure. Trained at prestigious institutions, he values patient education and aims to empower patients to actively participate in their foot and ankle health management.

Our Protocol for Bunionectomy

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, our approach to bunionectomy is personalized and thorough:

  • Pre-Surgical Evaluation: A comprehensive evaluation of your foot and general health is carried out to determine if a bunionectomy is the best course of treatment.
  • Surgery: The exact surgical procedure depends on the severity of the bunion. Procedures range from removal of the bony enlargement to bone realignment. Rest assured, Dr. Burge is skilled in the latest surgical techniques to ensure optimal results.
  • Post-Surgical Care: Post-operative care is crucial to successful recovery. We provide detailed care instructions, and arrange for follow-up visits to monitor your healing progress.

Post-Bunionectomy Home Care Tips

Effective home care after bunionectomy can promote healing and ensure a successful recovery:

  1. Rest and Elevation: Limit weight-bearing activities and keep your foot elevated as much as possible to reduce swelling.
  2. Wound Care: Follow the prescribed wound care instructions to prevent infection.
  3. Wear a Surgical Shoe or Boot: A special shoe or boot is usually required for several weeks to protect your foot while it heals.

Entrust your foot health to the best in the Dallas area at Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists. Our team, led by Dr. Patrick Burge, provides the highest level of care, ensuring you experience a smooth surgery and recovery process. With our support, you’ll be back on your feet in no time.

I love Dr. McClurkin and Dr. Burge! Everyone is so helpful and they really know what they're doing. I will definitely see them again!
I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and suffered with pain on and off for many years. After trying another round of steroids with little improvement (this time the left foot was the culprit of my pain), Dr. Burge suggested I try their Lunula Laser. I must say I was skeptical at something for which I didn't see or feel anything during treatment. After completing the 6th round I realized I was not feeling the stabbing pain in my heel, that I had used my water socks and been at the pool with no pain afterwards, and I had worn my dressy sandals all weekend long and not complained of pain in my left foot at all! Now, that was a huge success for me! My right foot is acting up a bit now. I know what to do this time. No more steroids! It will be Lunula Laser for me!
Thank you for your excellent care. 🙏🏾💜

Dr. Burge has an exceptional bedside manner and is an excellent surgeon!
I was referred from a friend who had dr Burge help with his diabetic foot ulcer. My son came in for an ingrown toenail and we could not have been happier with the experience. The staff was fantastic, super friendly and very helpful. Dr burge is a younger guy related well to my teenage son and was very clear in his explanation of what was going on and how the procedure would progress.We would highly recommend him and his office as a great place to go.
UNFORTUNATELY broke my toe multiple times in the same year. FORTUNATELY I found Dr Burge. One of the kindest doctors I've ever met and such an efficient office. I never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be seen. I think my toe kept breaking because it liked him that much!
I can’t say enough about dr burge. His bedside manner is something I crave in every interaction I have. My foot could scare a grown man, and he made me feel like I could be a foot model. His attention to detail and gentle touch will never be forgotten.
