What is a Bunion?
A bunion appears as protuberance of bone around the big toe joint. The enlargement can also occur at the outside of the foot, at the base of the little toe. This is called a Tailor's bunion or bunionette. As a bunion deformity progresses with time, an enlargement increases in size behind the big toe, making shoe wear difficult and painful. Consequently, the big toe will shift position and move over or under the toes next to the big toe. A bunion is actually a malalignment of the big toe joint bones as they shift out of place. In order to correct a bunion, the bones must be realigned.
What are your options?
To address a bunion, you can go through traditional methods. However, be aware that these methods can potentially put emotional, mental and physical stress on your body. The photos below are patients who have experienced traditional methods.
The Photos below are examples of bunion surgeries performed through traditional methods. Accent on Feet practices Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) to ensure that our patients are not subjected to this experience.
