Do you suffer from bunion pain? Bunions appear as a lump on the outside of the foot and occur when the big toe is pushed towards the other toes, forming a growth at the joint. This deformity can cause pain in the joint of the big toe and can interfere with your quality of life.
Most bunions can be treated without surgery. When nonsurgical treatments don’t do anything to relieve your discomfort, bunion surgery can eliminate your pain, correct any related foot deformity, and help you get back to your normal activities quickly. An orthopaedic surgeon at Suburban Orthopaedics can help you determine if this is the best course of action for you needs.
Bunion Surgery can help you get on the Move Again
Studies have found that, at least, 85% of patients who opt for bunion surgery are satisfied with the results. If you suffer from the following issues, this option might be just what you need:
- Chronic inflammation and swelling of the big toe that doesn’t improve with medication or rest.
- Severe foot pain that puts a damper on your everyday activities, like walking and wearing reasonably sized shoes.
- Big toe stiffness or deformity.
It is important to note that bunion surgery is not mean to be cosmetic. The goal of this type of surgery is to provide a significant difference in the alignment of the big toe and to dramatically relieve your pain.
