SOME FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT BUNIONS
WHY DO BUNIONS DEVELOP?
As bunions become more severe, the joint moves out of proper alignment and eventually arthritis damages the joint space. The large toe will move sideways towards the second toe, and the foot tends to widen across the metatarsal area. This is a mechanical consequence not usually caused by shoegear. However, shoegear can certainly aggravate the condition and speed up the development of a more serious and significant deformity.
If surgery is recommended, we will discuss the surgical procedures that are best suited for your particular bunion deformity. There are many different types of bunion surgical procedures now available, many having been developed by podiatrists specializing in this type of surgery. The procedure selected is based on examination, X-ray findings, age and activity level of the patient; factors that can influence the final outcome. In all cases, both doctor and patient need to work as a team for a successful and satisfactory result.
WHAT KIND OF SURGERY IS REQUIRED TO REPAIR MY BUNION?
TAILOR`S BUNION DEFORMITY
There are a few conditions which may cause the “bump” in this area:
1. An overgrowth or swelling of the soft tissue covering this joint (bursitis).
2. A congenitally (at birth) wide head of the fifth metatarsal bone.
3. An actual bowing and/or splaying of the fifth metatarsal bone.
