Do You Have A Bunion? Visit Your Podiatrist
Bunions are one of the most common disorders treated by podiatrists across the country. Wearing any type of shoe may be painful when you have a bunion, and the bigger your bunion gets, the more it hurts to walk.
Bunion surgery, or bunionectomy, realigns the bone, ligaments, tendons and nerves so your big toe can be brought back to its correct position and the bump on the inside of the joint removed.
Most bunions can be treated conservatively with wider & softer shoes, pads to relieve the pressure and/or medications. If this does not help then surgical treatment is indicated.
