Do you or someone you know suffer from painful bunions? Even though they are a common foot deformity, there are misconceptions about them as many people unnecessarily suffer with pain for years before seeking treatment. Da Vinci Foot and Ankle specializes in both conservative treatments and bunion surgical options. Bunions can be bothersome for individuals of all ages, attributing to both cosmetic concerns and pain with shoes and activities. Bunions are readily apparent, as you can see the prominence at the base of the big toe or side of the foot. However, to fully evaluate your condition, foot and ankle surgeons Dr. Allison Menke and Dr. Christopher Menke will take x-rays to determine the degree of the deformity and assess the changes that have occurred. Not all cases are alike, as some bunions progress more rapidly than others. After one of our foot doctors have evaluated your particular case, a treatment plan can be developed that is best suited to your needs.

Sometimes observation of the bunion is all that’s needed. A periodic office evaluation and x-ray examination can determine if your bunion deformity is advancing, thereby reducing your chance of irreversible damage to the joint. In many other cases, however, some type of treatment is needed. Early treatments are aimed at easing bunion pain but they won’t reverse the deformity itself. When the pain of a bunion interferes with daily activities, it’s time to discuss surgical options with Da Vinci Foot and Ankle. Recent advances in surgical techniques have led to a very high success rate in treating bunions, with the goal of these corrections is the elimination of pain.
