Don’t hesitate to contact us for a bunion consultation to relieve your pain and prevent further foot conditions from developing.
Avoiding Foot Pain
Bunions are bulges made up of bone and soft tissue that develop on the inside of the foot. When left untreated, bunions can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort.
If you’re experiencing toe or foot pain as a result of bunions, you may want to consider having a bunionectomy to remove your bunion.
Performed by Dr. Jamshidinia at the Bunion Center of Excellence, bunionectomy involves the removal of the inflamed tissue around the big toe joint and the realignment of the toe. After bunionectomy, most patients experience significantly less pain while performing everyday activities.
Are bunion pain and suffering preventing you from participating in your favorite activities? If bunions interfere with your ability to walk, jog, exercise or even find shoes that fit properly, you might be a good candidate for bunion surgery.
Not only can bunion surgery help alleviate your pain, but the procedure also improves the appearance of your foot and toe. After undergoing a bunionectomy at the Bunion Center of Excellence, you will be proud to show off your feet!
Preventing Further Foot Deformity
Of course, the advantages of having bunion surgery go beyond the aesthetic. Left untreated, bunions can result in further deformity to the foot and toe.
Because bunions may rub against the inside of the shoe, patients can develop corns, calluses and other skin irritations. Further, increased pressure from the big toe on the other toes can result in painful ingrown toenails.
In severe cases, bunions can even develop into hammertoe, a condition in which an enlarged middle toe joint causes the toe to bend in a downward direction. Over time, patients can lose feeling and mobility in their feet!
Seeking treatment when bunions are in their early stages not only reduces your chance of developing these potentially debilitating complications, but it also may prevent you from needing more invasive treatments later.
