Bunions are misaligned big toe joints that can
become swollen and tender, causing the first joint
of the big toe to slant outward, and the second
joint to angle toward the other toes. Bunions
tend to be hereditary, but can be aggravated by
shoes that are too narrow in the forefoot and
toe. Surgery by a podiatric physician is frequently
recommended to correct the problem.
Bunions are a painful condition that limits what
people can do and the shoes they can wear. Only
surgery can reduce the structural deformity that
is a bunion.
Bunion surgery can be very expensive.
In addition to the surgeon's fees, time missed
from work, the Hospital or Surgery center fees
can be more than $3,000.00.
Many Americans have no health insurance or have
portions of the bill they have to pay. Rising deductibles
and coinsurance continue to raise the portion of
any medical bill that the patient must pay.

The bunion surgery we perform is one of the most common and time
tested techniques performed throughout the United
States. Sometimes called the "Irving" type bunionectomy
(Not related to the fine city but named after
a person decades ago) the distal chevron osteotomy
allows patient to bear weight/walk on the surgery
during the healing period. Usually no crutches
are needed and the patient walks in a surgical
shoe for four weeks, returning to wide comfortable
shoes after 4 weeks, full activity 6-8 weeks.
