Best Treatment for Bunions in Orlando!!!
Bunions are enlargements or “bumps” that are obvious on the inside of the foot near the big toe. When this happens, the big toe begins to point toward the second toe. The problem is often worse when wearing tight shoes.
The corrective procedure at Laser Foot Surgery Specialist consists of an incision of approximately 1/8 inch wide and using a tiny drill, a small cut is made across the bone. The incision enables the doctor to reposition the top third of the bone to a straight position.
The area of the metatarsal bone, where the bump formed, is smoothed. It is also necessary in most cases to “lengthen” some of the tendons to the big toe. In severe bunions, a second cut in the bone of the big toe may also be necessary to straighten the toe. Post-op requirement may include a post-surgical shoe for 3 to 4 weeks after the procedure, with bandage change once a week.

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.
