Warning Signs & Symptoms
Symptoms of a bunion include red calloused skin, a bony bump along the foot at the base of the big toe, pain over the joint (aggravated by pressure from shoes) and the big toe turned toward the other toes.
Patients can treat bunions by having them removed. Click on the procedure to find out more information, including an overview of the procedure, what to expect and how to prepare.
Poor-fitting, narrow shoes cause toes to be compressed and can lead to bunions. Wide, properly-fitting shoes can help prevent bunions.
The patient is advised to keep the foot propped up and protected from pressure, weight and injury while it heals after bunion removal. Complete recovery may take 3-5 weeks.
