He practices free of the limitations mandated by in-network insurance participation and offers extended time, individualized attention and empathetic expertise. If you have a question about whether or not your bunion needs surgical treatment, you can schedule a first or second opinion bunion surgery consultation with us.
A bunion is a foot deformity (a lump) that permanently alters the actual physical shape of the foot causing the big toe to turn inward towards the second toe. This leads to a visual alteration of the foot, pain and inflammation. A bunion is caused by flat foot syndrome, incorrect footwear, joint damage, arthritis, and genetic disposition.
When should you consider having surgery?
- It is confirmed that you have a bunion – with progressive arthritis that has been confirmed by clinical exam and x-rays
- You feel that you have exhausted all conservative care
- You are a professional athlete / dancer and the discomfort is interfering with your performance.
- Your daily activities are becoming difficult
- You have pain inside the joint
- You are having problems finding shoes that fit
- Aesthetically you are displeased of the appearance
There are more than 100 different ways that a foot surgeon can perform this surgery. Some procedures allow you to walk much sooner meaning you may not have to use crutches. Depending on your foot type the procedure can have a greater risk for return of the bunion deformity. Other procedures may require you to be on crutches for a few weeks – but may offer a better long-term result. Dr. Stuart Mogul will thoughtfully evaluate your case and lifestyle and present you with the best surgical options for you.
