Bunions
 
 
 


 
Bunions are misaligned big toe joints that can become swollen and tender, causing the first joint of the big toe to slant outward, and the second joint to angle toward the other toes. Bunions tend to be hereditary, but can be aggravated by shoes that are too narrow in the forefoot and toe.

Unfortunately conservative treatment is not often helpful. Surgery is usually needed to correct the deformity in the bone. Fortunately Dr. Bregman can usually perform a procedure that will allow you to be on your feet in a few days without the need for crutches or a cast. 90% of all Bunion surgeries are painless after the surgery!!

You can usually be back in a shoe in 3-4 weeks and back to normal activity in 8-10 weeks.
