Bunions are painful deformities that unfortunately get worse if left untreated. As your big toe joint is forced further and further out of alignment, the resulting bony protrusion only gets bigger, making it even more vulnerable to pressure and aggravation. If your bunion is causing frequent pain or interfering with your daily activities, it’s time to get help & get back to normal.
The NYC Foot & Ankle team is here to safely treat your bunion and get you back to doing the things you love without the pain.
Our Location Is Modern. Welcoming. Evolved.

By the time I gave up trying to endure my ingrown toenail, it was red, swollen, and I was in a lot of pain. I called Dr. Abbott’s office and got right in. I needn’t have worried. Not only did he take care of me, but he was kind while you did it. Thank you. I expected to be lectured for not taking proper care of my toe, and then for not coming in sooner, but instead Dr. Abbott treated me with respect. His bedside manner is something to be admired. I felt comfortable with his care, and he were able to care for my toe in a permanent way. Thank you! I can’t explain how grateful I am to Dr. Abbott for fixing my problem with speed, kindness, and skill.”
“In a word, wow! Skilled, mindful + kind are a rare combination in a doctor…. Dr Valencia is the epitome of all three. I feel blessed to have found her! Oh, and she resolved my decades long ingrown toenail issue painlessly and patiently, explaining options carefully. Since many potential patients might find this a challenge I won’t say run don’t walk…. rather just make your way to her contentious care, your feet shall be glad you did.”
“I’ve been a runner for well over 30 years with 18 marathons completed, so I’ve had my share of foot problems over the years. I saw Dr. Abbott for a very painful ingrown toenail. During the initial evaluation, he also found a bone spur, as well as an infection that had triggered the loss of another toenail. Dr. Abbott treated the infection promptly and effectively, and then permanently removed both the ingrown toenail and the bone spur with minimally invasive procedures. I healed quickly and am running pain-free for the first time in more than five years. It”s a wonderful feeling. I’m very grateful for Dr. Abbott’s help and would strongly recommend his services.”
