The Basics of Bunions
Bunions are more common than you think and the doctors at the New Jersey Podiatric Physicians & Surgeons Group can help. They provide solutions for patients as they identify and treat bunions with non-invasive solutions. Surgery only becomes an option when all other conservative treatments have failed. Follow along for what makes this toe deformity a bother for many patients. Keep in mind that we inherit our foot structure. See if other family members have a similar experience.
Request an intervention
What is the concern with a progressive toe deformity? Without intervention, the deformity will continue to progress. A bunion often stands out because it is a noticeable bump along the big toe joint. Over time, it can become very painful. The discomfort can impact mobility, too. We recommend connecting with a podiatrist as soon as possible.
Explore non-surgical options
From custom orthotics to pads, a podiatrist may present many options before surgery. Poorly fitting shoes are often a problem, so we recommend adding cushioning and a wider toe box. If you think surgery is your only option, think again. Our doctors are here to walk you through treatment options.
