Do you have redness, pain, swelling and calluses at the base of your big toe? These large protrusions are commonly known as bunions, and they can be a nuisance. Fortunately, with bunion surgery, you can find relief.
Although popular belief assumes that bunions are a growth of the bone, bunions are actually bulging caused by displacement of the big toe joint under the skin. Bunions are often painful and can be made worse by certain shoes, such as high heels.
Typically, bunions are caused by genetics and worsen over time. The proper bunion surgery technique to use depends on the severity of the bunion and the exact cause of the bunion.
To learn more about bunion surgery, speak with Dr. Neal Blitz.
