Bony deformities such as hammer toes and bunions can be treated by podiatric surgeons, usually as a day case procedure and often under local anaesthetic.  Podiatric surgeons are specialists in foot surgery, having undergone undergraduate training and then a comprehensive postgraduate course in both academic and hands on practical training.

If you think you need foot surgery, this can usually be arranged under the care of the NHS, you will in most cases need to be referred by your GP or you can contact your local NHS podiatry unit for advice.
