At Silverstone Podiatry, Dr. Nick provides 5-star-rated bunion treatment in Lenox Hill, NY to help restore your foot’s appearance and function. Because we believe no one should have to suffer from the pain and embarrassment of bunions anymore! A bunion is not just a bump – it’s a structural deformity where the underlying bones in your big toe are misaligned. Unfortunately, bunions progress as we age – they never regress by themselves, and advertised splints are ineffective at actually correcting the problem.
Oftentimes, bunions develop from faulty foot mechanics that we inherit. So if you have a bunion, someone in your family tree more than likely passed down the foot structure that resulted in your bunion. When there is an instability in your foot that allows one muscle to gain an advantage over another, this causes your big toe to drift toward the smaller toes. Women’s shoes that are narrow and often pointed further aggravates the problem.
While surgery may be the best treatment for your bunion, Dr. Nick may also have nonsurgical options for you. Over the years, he has seen deformities of all sizes and symptoms. You should know that not all bunions are painful. Some people have no problems with their bunions, while others are so embarrassed, they avoid wearing open-toed shoes. The decision of whether to pursue bunion surgery or not depends on a variety of factors, including your own needs and wishes.
If you don’t mind having a bunion, Dr. Nick can treat it conservatively with appropriate shoes, custom orthotics, padding, and/or injection therapy to maximize your comfort. If you want to get rid of your bunion, know that you are in the hands of a surgical specialist with extensive experience. You can rest easy that you will experience aesthetic and pain-free results.
