Bunion Treatment in New Jersey
Bunions are misaligned big toe joints, which can become swollen and tender. Although bunions tend to be genetic, shoes and certain activities can aggravate them.
Several preventative measures can be taken to minimize the discomfort of a bunion. Our doctors will always begin with a conservative treatment program. If the more conservative treatment fails to provide adequate relief, you may be considered a candidate for surgery.
Comprehensive Biomechanical Evaluation
Our doctors not only remove bunions but also determine its cause, in order to help prevent a reoccurrence. When possible, they will address these causes in order to achieve a long-term solution. For example, a flatfoot deformity (abnormal proration) is a common cause of bunions. If you have flatfoot deformity, you may be a candidate to have this corrected with a subtalar arthroesis procedure in conjunction with your bunion correction.
