Does Bone & Joint treat bunions?

Foot and Ankle

Dr. Thomas G. Staysniak and Dr. Paul T. Strobel are board-certified surgical podiatrists who treat all types of foot and ankle conditions, including bunions and ingrown toenails.

Hallux valgus, better known as a bunion, occurs when pressure pushes on the joint at the base of the big toe. When it is out of place, this joint, which bears much of your weight, becomes very painful. In some cases, bunions become so painful, that it’s impossible to wear shoes.

But before bunion pain increases to that level, there are several treatments that may slow its progression. Your podiatrist will choose the best one based on your condition.

If you have suffered from bunion pain for nine to twelve months, you should request an appointment with a podiatrist or call Bone & Joint for an appointment at 800.445.6442. We can help relieve your pain.
