Surgical and Nonsurgical Bunion Treatment at Florida Medical Clinic
The podiatrists at Florida Medical Clinic can provide a variety of bunion treatment options to patients who are experiencing misalignment of the bone and/or tissue in the foot joints. These joints help support weight and facilitate motion, and when one (or both) move out of place, it can cause significant discomfort. However, there are several different treatment options for managing the stiffness, soreness, and pain that often accompany bunions. At Florida Medical Clinic, our experienced podiatrists can make tailored treatment recommendations for each patient to help them get back to their active lifestyles.
While bunions are permanent unless surgically corrected, there are a number of non-surgical bunion treatment options that can help alleviate pain and pressure on the foot joint. These options include:
- Orthotic inserts and gel pads
- Anti-inflammatory medications (both over-the-counter and prescription)
- Overnight splints for temporary immobilization
- Heat/ice therapy
- Selecting more supportive footwear
We also offer bunion surgery for patients who are experiencing more persistent symptoms. There are many different procedures that can be used to remove misplaced bone or tissue and/or realign the joints, and our podiatrists will offer several different options to patients who are considering surgical bunion treatment. In most cases, bunion surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. Patients will return to Florida Medical Clinic for follow-up care to ensure their recovery is proceeding as planned.
