Bunion Surgery Available for Those in the Freehold, NJ, Area
If you need bunion surgery, the team at New Jersey Foot and Ankle is here to help. A subsidiary of Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute New Jersey, we have a stellar reputation in the Freehold community as a facility that offers highly personalized and comprehensive treatment for conditions and injuries that affect the foot. We understand that bunions carry much of the weight while you’re walking, and therefore cause an especially severe amount of pain, which is why we will work hard to alleviate your discomfort and get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
Bunions are caused by years of abnormal motion and pressure being put on the joint of the base of the big toe, causing a bony lump to form on the joint. At New Jersey Foot and Ankle, our board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians can help you treat your bunions by recommending a number of conservative methods that are less invasive than bunion surgery, including:
- Medication management
- Bunion pads
- Changing shoes
If conservative methods have been exhausted, your physician may recommend bunion surgery to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the foot. It typically involves an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and the removal or realignment of soft tissue and bone. Small, screws, plates, or wires may be used to hold the bones in place.
