Bunion Slide Procedure in Oakbrook

Here at AFP Podiatry – Lombard, our bunion doctor in Oakbrook, Dr. Forni, is here to help you heal your feet and walk comfortably again. Bunions are one of the most common issues that we diagnose in the patients that visit us here at AFP Podiatry – Lombard. A bunion is an alignment problem that occurs with the first toe, in which the first metatarsal bone begins to drift away from the other metatarsals, and leads to a bulging out on the side of the big toe, and the big toe begins to lean inward toward the other toes. Bunions can be caused by a number of reasons. One common reason that people develop bunions is long term wear of tight fitting shoes or high heels with narrow points. Bunions most often caused, however, due to heredity. If you have a family history of bunion development, you should be on the lookout for symptoms in your own feet. Other causes of bunions include: foot injuries, neuromuscular disorders, arthritis, or deformities that have been present from birth. You are also at an increased risk of developing bunions if you have flat feet or low arches. In addition, spending a majority of your time on your feet or walking can also contribute to bunion development. If you notice changes in your big toe, pain in the area, or other related symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our bunion doctor in Oakbrook, Dr. Forni, as soon as possible. One of the most popular bunion treatments we use is the bunion slide treatment. We can let you know which treatment option will work best for you during your next appointment with our bunion doctor in Oakbrook, Dr. Forni.
