What Causes Painful Bunions?

“Are you tired of living with that painful bunion? Are you having difficulty wearing your favorite shoes? Bunions are due primarily to genetic factors but can become painful over time due to trauma, ill-fitting shoes, and poor foot structure. What happens is that the bone connected to the big toe starts to grow outward, pushing the big toe sideways into the other toes, which can also lead to painful hammertoes, corns, and calluses. 

Bunions, if left untreated, not only can become painful, but can become progressively worse. Although wider shoes, padding, and custom orthotics may slow down this progression, surgery is the only way to correct a bunion deformity. I’ve been performing bunion surgeries in local hospitals for over 25 years. Bunion surgery is always performed on an out-patient basis, which means patients get to go home on the same day as the surgery. Many of our patients are walking on the operated foot within a few days and can return to work within a short period of time. 

It is our objective to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. Schedule an appointment today and let us evaluate your bunion to determine the best course of treatment.”
