A bunion is seen as an enlargement or “bump” on the inside of the foot near the big toe. Often, the big toe will turn and begin to point toward the second toe. Actually, a bunion forms when one of the long bones of the foot, known as the first metatarsal, becomes dislocated toward the other foot.
Bunion Surgery - Approx. $3500 Depending On The Severity Of The Condition
Heel pain is usually caused by acute or chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia, a ligament-like structure located on the bottom of the foot. Inflammation of the plantar fascia (plantar fascitis) can be caused by a heel spur (pointed to by arrow in picture below) or by gout, arthritis, obesity, and other local and systemic diseases.

EPAT is an acronym for Extracorporeal (outside the body) Pulse Activation Treatment. Shock waves are created by very strong acoustic (sound) energy. The shock wave generator is very similar to the shock wave devices used to treat kidney stones without surgery. EPAT treatment has recently been found to be effective for treating chronic proximal plantar fasciitis, a condition that causes pain in the heel of the affected foot and is sometimes called a “heel spur”.
Laser technology may seem like a mysterious and complicated science, but it’s really not. Think about a Laser as you would a sunbeam – did anyone ever show you the “magnifying glass experiment” when you were younger? Lasers work in much the same way during surgery to treat your foot problem. Although Laser is an exciting technology, there are some limits. Research is under way, but bone problems like bunions and hammer toes cannot currently be treated with laser.
