Bunion Myth Debunked

Published on July 19, 2016

Over his long career treating thousands of bunion and foot ailments, Dr. Neal Blitz has become one of the foremost medical experts on bunions. You might be surprised to learn that many patients often have misconceptions about bunions or even outright misinformation!

The biggest myth that Dr. Blitz runs across is the misconception that bunions are caused by an overgrowth of bone. In reality, bone overgrowth is exceptionally uncommon as a source of a bunion. Bunions are actually typically caused by the dislocation of the big toe joint, which causes it to bulge outward against the skin.

If you’ve got a bunion that needs treatment, contact Dr. Blitz today to arrange a consultation! Dr. Blitz will be sure to answer any questions you may have.
