Caption: Bunion surgery. Close-up of surgeons inserting metal screws during surgery to treat a bunion. Bunions are swellings of the joint between the big toe and the first metatarsal bone. They cause the base of the big toe to project outwards and the tips of the toes to point inwards. Bunions are caused by the rubbing of ill-fitting shoes. Surgery involves removing the bony spurs that form, and can also involve inserting screws to prevent bunions recurring. For a sequence of images from this operation, see images C014/7773 to C014/7775.
