Caption: Orthopaedic foot surgery. View of an orthopaedic surgeon using forceps to examine a patient's foot before an operation. The position of the incision has been marked on the foot. Orthopaedic surgery concerns the bones, joints and their associated muscles, tendons and ligaments. Orthopaedic foot surgery may be carried out to treat bunions. Bunions, which are often caused by poorly-fitting shoes, are swellings of the joint at the base of the big toe. They can lead to bone deformation and the development of fluid-filled pads (bursa), and may require surgery. The surgeon is wearing surgical gloves and a face mask to maintain a sterile environment.
