Bunions

Bunions are a common problem treated by Podiatrists. There are many types of bunions and can be caused by wearing high heels but are usually hereditary. These painful “bumps” form most often on the inside or top of the big toe. Symptoms generally include pain, swelling and redness after wearing tight fitting shoes. Bunions are a progressive disorder and will not get better without treatment. Early treatment can include injections, padding the bunion, changing shoes and custom made orthotics. But sometimes surgical intervention is necessary. Surgery can be performed in the office utilizing the latest surgical procedures and instrumentation. In order to find the best treatment plan for you, it will be necessary to have your foot x-rayed and evaluated by Dr. Rhodes followed by consultation.
