We discourage this.  We explain it this way to our patients.  Your feet are the only parts of your body that touch the ground, if we perform surgery of both bunions at the same time it prevents you from having one good foot to stabilize yourself with, drive, perform your day to day activities.  This practice may also compromise your surgical outcome because you may not allow the procedures to heal uneventfully.  However when this is preformed we require our patients to sign a wheelchair non-weightbearing contract with our doctors so that we can insure are positive experience prevent a poor result.
