Bunion

Pain and stiffness in your foot with walking, mainly in the big toe? This could be the result of a bunion. Bunions are a bony bump that forms at the base of the joint of your big toe. For many, bunions run in the family, and usually show up in early childhood, while getting worse with age. It occurs most often in women who for years may have been wearing tight poorly fitting shoes or high heels.

Bunion surgery generally involves an incision at the top or side of the big toe joint to assist in the removal or realignment of soft tissue and bone. This is done to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the joint. Dr. Engel and Dr. Nute specialize in this procedure. Call us today at 262-764-5595.
