Finding Relief from Bunion Pain at Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Bunions, those bony protrusions at the base of the big toe, can be more than a cosmetic concern—they can cause significant pain and affect your quality of life. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we specialize in advanced bunion correction procedures designed to relieve discomfort and restore function.

What Are Bunions?

A bunion, or hallux valgus, is a deformity characterized by lateral deviation of the big toe, often causing a swollen, bony bump on the side of the foot. Bunions develop from an imbalance in the foot's structure and can be exacerbated by tight shoes, genetics, or specific foot functions.

Symptoms That May Indicate a Bunion

  • Persistent or intermittent pain
  • A bulging bump on the outside of the base of your big toe
  • Restricted movement of your big toe
  • Difficulty fitting into shoes comfortably
  • Corns or calluses often develop where the first and second toes overlap

Our Approach to Bunion Correction

Our podiatric experts employ a variety of treatment methods tailored to the severity of the bunion and the needs of the individual patient:

  • Conservative Management: Specialized footwear, custom orthotics, and physical therapy to alleviate symptoms without surgery.
  • Minimally Invasive Techniques: Procedures involving smaller incisions to reduce recovery time and discomfort.
  • Traditional Bunion Surgery: Correcting the misaligned bones through surgical reconstruction.
  • Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction: A cutting-edge procedure that addresses the root cause of the bunion in three dimensions.

Advanced Surgical Options

When surgery is necessary, our team utilizes the latest advancements in podiatric surgery to ensure optimal outcomes:

  • Lapiplasty®: This patented procedure realigns and stabilizes the metatarsal bone at its foundation, offering a permanent solution with a quick recovery time.
  • Osteotomy: Traditional surgical cutting of the bone to correct alignment.
  • Exostectomy: Removal of the bump on the toe joint without realigning the toe.
  • Arthrodesis: Fusion of the affected joint for cases with severe arthritis or deformity.

Postoperative Care and Recovery

We provide comprehensive postoperative care, including:

  • Pain management strategies
  • Rehabilitation exercises
  • Guidance on footwear to prevent recurrence
  • Follow-up appointments to monitor healing
