Expert treatment of bunions in Lancashire
Bunions are a very common deformity of the foot. Associated with a family history of the condition, wearing badly fitting shoes and arthritis, the initial sign of a bunion is the big toe pointing towards the other toes on the same foot. Over time, the whole shape of the foot can change as the first metatarsal is pushed outwards causing pain and swelling in the area of the big toe. Untreated, bunions can cause arthritis in the big toe and even push the second toe out of alignment.
The pain and discomfort of a bunion can be alleviated with a range of non-surgical treatments, however surgery is the only way to correct a bunion and prevent it from getting progressively worse over time. Mr Raut offers expert treatment for bunions using his own modified form of osteotomy surgery, which involves the removal of the bony lump and the realignment of the toe joint and bones of the big toe. He then corrects any soft tissue deformity, improving the appearance and stability of the foot.
