Bunions

Mother and daughter: bunions can be in the genes

The commonest foot condition we treat is a Bunion. It appears as a large bony bump on the side of the foot. Bunions may be extremely painful and make it difficult to wear shoes.  Bunions are also formed when the big toe loses its flexibility to bend during walking.

Experts suggest that bunions are hereditary and not caused but aggravated by badly fitting footwear. Smaller bunions (bunionettes) can form on the joint of the little toes.

 

  • Bunion surgery at The Yorkshire Foot Hospital is nearly always carried out under local anaesthetic
  • Most cases DO NOT require plaster casts

  • Recovery is around 6 weeks after which patients can begin to return to normal activities and footwear.We are the only stand alone hospital in Yorkshire and pride ourselves in our care to alleviate your symptoms as quickly as possible.
