When it comes to a condition like the bunion there is confusion as to whether to have something done or not. The patient’s need for quality information and guidance often plays second place. If you are contemplating bunion surgery, then please read this book first. Let’s see if we can avoid surgery, but if not, it is important to make the right decision. David Tollafield, a retired podiatric (foot) surgeon will take you through the corridors behind the scenes in an open appraisal of modern day management of this often painful condition. The book is divided into three parts with 25 external hyperlinked areas for ease of navigation. There are 17 case histories, 3 instructional films made especially for this book on self-management, 23 colour plates, 7 lines drawings and 3 tables.And what some readers had to say…… I had to scratch around the internet looking at blogs, which mainly were American. In fact, had I read your book I may well have saved myself some money. I particularly enjoyed your patients’ diaries Your book is extremely well written and I would highly recommend anyone considering surgery to read this first. There was more post-op information than anything that I could find! Nicola Harvey, Registered Nurse and foot surgery patientThis is a very comprehensive book, covering all aspects of hallux valgus surgery. I think it’s an essential read for anyone undergoing this type of procedure, explaining things in layman’s terms. The ‘real’ stories answer the age-old question from patients ‘Is there someone I can speak to who has had this done?’Mr Tony Wilkinson, Consultant Podiatric Surgeon & Former Dean, College of Podiatry
