    Corrective bunion surgery

    I am 44 years old and my bunions are limiting my ability to exercise. Should I put up with the pain and discomfort or have surgery? Will corrective treatment relieve the pain?

    There are many ways to address bunions surgically.  It is possible surgery could help protect the big toe joint from further deterioration.  We know one thing for sure and that is bunions do not get better by themselves and often worsen with time.  You need advise tailored to your specific circumstances.  Book for an appointmentment.
