Coloured X-ray (top view) of the foot of a female patient aged 69, showing treatment of a bunion (hallux valgus) with surgery to straighten the bones of the large toe. Bunions are a swelling of the large toe joint which deforms the toes and causes them to turn inwards. Here, the surgery has reshaped the bones and secured them with metal screws.
