Bunion surgery is done to reduce the pain and correct the deformity caused by a bunion.
A bunion (hallux valgus) is an enlargement of the bone or tissue around a joint at the base of the big toe or at the base of the little toe.
This one is called a “bunionette” or “tailor’s bunion.” Bunions often form when the joint is stressed over a prolonged period.
Our clinics offer various forms of treatments.
Our surgical facility in our Elmhurst can offer surgical treatment for bunions. We remove the bunion and realigns bones to bring the big toe back into its correct position.
We can craft an orthothics to help control alignment issues that may be contributing to a bunion formation.
