Individuals with certain foot structures are more prone to bunions. The team conducts a detailed examination at your consultation to understand your unique foot characteristics and tailor your bunion treatment accordingly.
NYC Foot & Ankle Center offers a range of treatments, with a special focus on minimally invasive surgical options for optimal comfort and faster recovery.
Footwear modification and orthotics are common nonsurgical options. Switching to comfortable, wide-toed shoes can alleviate pressure on the bunion, and custom orthotic devices provide support and stability, reducing bunion-related discomfort.
If surgery is required, the team offers advanced and minimally invasive options, such as arthroscopy and laser surgery.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses small incisions and a camera to visualize and treat the bunion with precision. Laser surgery utilizes advanced laser technology for precise bunion correction. It minimizes tissue damage and promotes faster recovery.
