Abstract

Complications following hallux valgus surgery can occur and are a frequent source of patient dissatisfaction. The treatment of these complications begins with careful preoperative planning to ensure that the chosen procedure is appropriate for the specific patient. When complications occur, treatment must also be individualized to address the symptoms of the patient. This article presented an overview of the more common complications that are seen following hallux valgus surgery. Nonsurgical and surgical options for treatment were outlined to assist in the management of these complications.
