I doubt it; if you are already s-c for it, removal by surgery still will result in a 10% rating under diagnostic code  5280     See this: 

Code 5280: When the big toe points toward the second toe, a bunion can form on the outside of the big toe. If the bony bump is removed by surgery, then it is rated 10%. If it is so severe that it is as though the big toe had been amputated, then it is also rated 10%. Otherwise, it is not ratable.
