Houston Foot and Ankle Surgeon that Treats Bunions


  • It occurs when the big toe points toward the second toe. This causes the appearance of a ridge on the outer edge of the finger.
  • You can have it if you experience the following symptoms:

    • Red, calloused skin along the inside edge of the big toe
    • A bony bump at this site
    • Pain over the joint, aggravated by pressure from shoes
    • The Big toe turned toward the other toes
  • Bunions are more common in women and can sometimes run in families. People born with abnormal bones in their feet are more likely to form a bunion.

    Also, the use of close-toed shoes and high heels can lead to the development of a bunion.

    The condition may become painful as the bump gets worse and the extra bone and a fluid-filled sac grow at the base of the big toe.
    • Avoid compressing the toes with narrow shoes and ill-fitting.
