    There are various types of surgeries to correct tailor's bunions, depending on the specifics of the individual deformity. It is really impossible to accurately predict what if any post-operative disability will occur in any individual patient, but in my experience, barring complications, the vast majority of tailor's bunion patients do well with ordinary use of their feet.
