What Is A Bunion?
Bunions are painful bone protrusions, commonly caused by wearing shoes that are too tight. They typically form on the inside edge of the big toe at the first metatarsal joint. If left untreated, bunions can cause major foot problems. The movement of the big toe can cause the second toe to shift as well, deforming the foot in the process. Red, calloused skin may also be present at the site of the bunion. Fortunately, there are a number of conventional and surgical options available to alleviate the symptoms or completely remove bunions.
Tremendous thought has been placed into our bunion removal procedure. It has been designed to result in no pain, allowing you to ambulate immediately, and heal as quickly as possible, without the recurrence of the bunion. Dr. Moy feels that the manner in which the bone cuts made and the particular compression he uses is the best possible way to ensure stability of the bone immediately following surgery.
