Have you noticed a boney bump forming around the base and inside of your big toe? Is it painful to walk or put on the shoes that once fit you perfectly? Are your 2nd-5th toes slanted over 30 degrees to the right or left? If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are most likely dealing with the development of a bunion!
Even though bunions are a common foot deformity, there are misconceptions about them as many people unnecessarily suffer with pain for years before seeking professional treatment.
Doctors Allison Menke and Dr. Christopher Menke at Da Vinci Foot specialize in both conservative treatments and bunion surgical options. Bunions can go undetected for years as they are a slow developing deformity and can be difficult to detect until the pain has begun.
Our Doctors can assess your feet and determine in just one visit if you do in fact have a bunion. Once this is established a specifically curated treatment plan will be developed for you based on the degree of your deformity and of course the amount of pain you are in.

When Surgery is Necessary
While early treatments are aimed at easing bunion pain, 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. Furthermore, 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. Together we can decide if surgery is best for you! Make your appointment below…
