Recurrence of the deformity is unfortunately a common occurrence following surgical treatment of hallux valgus. The underlying reason for recurrence is multifactorial and includes surgeon's factor, patient's factor, and deformity components that were not addressed at the index procedure. Salvage of recurrence can be challenging for both the patient and the surgeon. Successful treatment requires understanding the underlying reason for the failure of initial treatment and correcting bony alignment, restoring the joint congruity, and balancing soft tissues. We present an algorithmic approach to revision hallux valgus surgery.
