Bunions- Painful Bumps On Your Feet

Bunions can be hereditary or can be caused by wearing shoes that don't fit correctly.  They are painful bumps on the foot that make shoe fitting even more difficult.  The pain can be very limiting and conservatively wearing wider shoes or padding the area can be useful.  Bunion splints are also an option that some people wear when they sleep at night, but the splints normally don't help long term.

If pain from a bump on your foot or a bunion is causing pain and conservative treatment hasn't helped, surgical options are also available.  Depending on the severity of the bunion and also how arthritic the joint is, different types of surgery are possible.  Surgical treatment ranges from more minimally invasive techniques to open procedures that correct the alignment of the bones and joints. 

At Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado, we use the latest techniques and surgical advances to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.  Bunion surgery can be painful, but we use techniques to keep your foot numb after surgery for the initial recovery period, which really helps healing and comfort.  People generally seem very happy and satisfied once they've had a bunion corrected, because they can wear shoes more comfortably and be more active than they previously could.  Call our expert foot and ankle surgeons, Dr. Hinderland and Dr. Cameron at 719-488-4664, so we can help you today!  Our friendly and compassionate staff is here to answer all of your questions and help develop the best treatment plan that's individualized to your needs.
