Are you one of the millions who suffer quietly when you feel the pressure intensify at the base of your big toe? Has your skin turned red and callused in that area? Is it getting increasingly difficult to wear shoes because of the pain? If your big toe has begun to angle toward your other toes, you may have early symptoms of a bunion.
Bunions are a bony growth that occurs at the base of the big toe and can include soft tissue as well. Bunions affect women several times more than men, and it may have some genetic links. If someone in your family has bunions, you may be more likely to develop them. A bunion can occur on one or both feet, and bone growth can be so pronounced that it begins to make wearing shoes difficult.

If you have symptoms of bunions, seek medical advice and get treatment suggestions right away. Bunions can become extremely painful and can affect your normal living routine. Dr. Vargas can probably evaluate your feet and diagnose a bunion visually, but he will get x-rays to help him determine how far the growth has progressed. Having a thorough examination can assist him in developing a treatment plan.

Early intervention of conservative treatment methods may be all that is required to successfully treat bunions. These methods may include:

  • Change to wide toed shoes
  • Use pads to protect the bunion from additional pressure
  • Try wearing sandals or a shoe that does not affect the bunion
  • Take over-the-counter pain medication if needed

A bunionectomy is the term applied to a surgical procedure used to reduce or remove a bunion. In order to correct this deformity, an incision is made, the bony overgrowth removed and the big toe is then realigned to a normal position and the incision is closed.

If your bunions have progressed beyond conservative treatment and interfere with your lifestyle, Dr. Vargas may recommend surgery. There are many different surgical options he has available to him to treat this condition. The exact procedure depends on the severity of your case and how it affects your life. He will discuss options with you and you can call him at (281) 313-0090 Sugar Land, or (281)342-8700 Richmond/Rosenberg. His goal is to keep you enjoying your life as pain free as possible.
