Bunion Correction with Scarf and Akin Osteotomy

WHAT IS A BUNION CORRECTION WITH SCARF AND AKIN OSTEOTOMY?

Bunion Correction with Scarf and Akin Osteotomy is used to correct a bunion, a deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe. In this procedure, portions of the bone are removed that form the bunion and then bone is positioned closer to the second toe. In cases where further realignment is required, an Akin Osteotomy is performed to straighten the toe.
