A bunion is a structural deformity where the underlying bones in your big toe are misaligned – it’s not just a bump. Unfortunately, bunions progress as we get older – they never regress by themselves, and advertised splints are ineffective at actually correcting the problem. Dr. Nick provides 5-star-rated New York City bunion treatment and surgery to help restore your foot’s appearance and function. You don’t need to be in pain anymore!
Often, bunions develop from faulty foot mechanics that we inherit. That means someone in your family tree 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. Because many women’s shoes are narrow and often pointed, this further aggravates the problem.
Surgery may be the best option for your bunion, but there may also be nonsurgical alternatives for you. Over the years, Dr. Nick has seen deformities of all sizes and symptoms. Not all bunions are physically painful. Some bunions cause no problems whatsoever, whereas others can leave you feeling embarrassed to show the bump on your foot at the beach. The decision whether to pursue bunion surgery or not depends on a variety of factors, including your own needs and wishes.
If you want to keep your bunion, Dr. Nick can treat it conservatively with appropriate shoes, custom orthotics, padding, and/or injection therapy to maximize your comfort. If you want the bunion gone, you can rest easy knowing that you are in the hands of a surgical specialist with extensive experience providing aesthetic and pain-free results.
