Only Surgery Can Correct a Bunion: MD Podiatrist

Very simply speaking, “A bunion is a bump at the base of the big toe,” Daniel Michaels, DPM says. Picture your big toe leaning sideways, toward your other four toes, and a large bony protrusion sticking out in the other direction – that’s a bunion.
“The benefit of surgery is that you are changing the structure of the bunion,” Dr. Michaels explains. “With conservative care, you are putting a Band-aid on the bunion in a sense; you will not take the bump away, just help with the pain of the bunion.”
