Bunion Treatment in Auburn, AL
Board-Certified Podiatrist Helps You Live a Better Life with Healthy Feet
A bunion is that unsightly prominence at the base of your great toe that can make shoes uncomfortable and sandals an embarrassment. It’s not just a bump, it’s a structural deformity where the underlying bones are misaligned. Unfortunately, bunions progress as we get older – they never regress by themselves and advertised splints are ineffective at actually correcting the problem. If you’re seeking bunion treatment in Auburn, AL, you’ve come to the right place.
Why Do I Have a Bunion?
Often, bunions develop from faulty foot mechanics that we inherit. Bunions are the result of an instability in your foot that allows one muscle to gain an advantage over another, causing the big toe to drift towards the smaller toes. Because many women’s shoes are narrow and often pointed, this further aggravates the problem.
Will I Need Surgery to Remove the Bunion?
The answer is an unequivocal MAYBE. Since 2001, we’ve seen deformities of all sizes and symptoms. Not all bunions are physically painful. Some bunions cause no problems, while others can cause embarrassment and deter the wearing of open toe shoes
If you want to keep your bunion, we can treat it conservatively with appropriate shoes, custom orthotics, padding and/or injection therapy to maximize your comfort. If you want the bunion gone, we specialize in their surgical removal. There are many ways to fix a bunion and we will review all options with you to determine to the best course of treatment based on your individual needs.
Typically, bunion surgery is performed in an outpatient setting under sedation and takes about an hour. Most people can walk on the foot within three days with the use of a protective cast or shoe. The majority of our patients surprisingly experience little pain following surgery.
