As warm weather approaches this season, more people are starting to don sandals and open-toed shoes; however – for those who have unsightly, painful, or embarrassing foot conditions – this may not seem like an option. But there is no need to hide away your bunions or hammertoes in winter shoes at the beach anymore, because there are many treatment options – both medical and cosmetic – for your feet.
You walk on your feet all day long, so it’s time to show them some love.
Our world-renowned foot specialists at La Peer Health Systems can help you beautify your feet and encourage you to flaunt your bare toes once again, without the pain or embarrassment. One of the best podiatrists in Los Angeles, Dr. Kamran Jamshidinia, offers many types of treatments and surgeries that you may never have considered.
Bunion Treatments and Surgery
Many people shy away from bunion surgery because of the common myths surrounding it, such as the idea that the procedure is extremely painful. While any surgery may be painful, bunionectomies are done as an expedient outpatient procedure, and patients can go home within hours.
Bunions can be painful and may hinder you from wearing normal shoes. When the pain becomes severe, it may be time to look into surgery, as leaving it untreated and open to bunion progression can significantly increase the pain. Medical treatment or surgery can help restore your foot to its normal state. After treatment, you can break out those sandals without having to worry about the health or appearance of your feet.
Hammertoes can be extremely painful and uncomfortable, and often disrupt your balance because they cause your toes to curl incorrectly. La Peer Health Systems offers a quick outpatient hammertoe procedure to relax the tissue in the foot and restore your toes to their natural state. This hammertoe procedure can be life changing, as it not only alleviates the pain and restores your balance, but it can also help you fit back into regular shoes again.
It may surprise you to know how common this procedure is. Many people are afflicted with a second or third toe that is too long, and this can cause painful callusing and joint dislocating. A toe shortening procedure is quick and can be done as an outpatient surgery, with a minimal amount of recovery time.
