WHAT IS A BUNION?

The classic bunion is a bump on the side of the great toe joint that causes it to push inward toward your other toes. As the bunion becomes more and more pronounced, it can change the shape of your foot and the position of your big toe tends to become increasingly painful.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS

Bunions develop from abnormal foot structure and mechanics, which place an undue load on the first metatarsal. This leads to stretching of supporting soft tissue structures, gradually deviating the 1st metatarsal and drifting of the great toe toward the second toe.

Possible causes include:

  • Family history and genetics
  • Arthritis
  • Neuromuscular conditions
  • Connective tissue disorders

Symptoms related to bunions may include:

  • Pain and swelling over the big toe that increases while wearing shoes
  • Swelling with red, sore and calloused skin at the base of the big toe
  • Sore skin over the toe
  • Difficulty in walking and wearing shoes

what our patient says about our service

Lilllian Patin

Dr. Korfin is an excellent surgeon who is compassionate and reassuring. I recently had a difficult bunionectomy and could not ask for a better physician. His explanations of options were direct and complete. He patiently answered all questions. He was clear that this would be a painful procedure and I fully appreciated his candor. After surgery, he was equally caring and compassionate. He laid out the prognosis explicitly and told me where I was at every interval. Additionally, at every visit and contact, he made sure that I knew I could contact him at any time if I needed help or more information. My surgical outcome is excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Korfin.

Becca Turtle

Dr. Korfin is an awesome and genuinely caring physician. He took the time to listen to my concerns regarding my feet. I came to him complaining of bunions and the pain I experienced on a daily basis in any and all shoes. He knew exactly what needed to be done and I was able to schedule surgery the following week. My feet look beautiful and I feel great. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. David Korfin for all of your podiatry needs! P.S. his staff is awesome too. I’m going to miss seeing their smiles and warm welcomes.

Mary Jo Barta

Dr. Korfin is the absolute BEST podiatrist, the kind most people only dream of finding…Obviously, I highly recommend him! He performed bilateral bunion surgery on me over 20 yrs ago and it went exceptionally well. I followed his post-surgical instructions and had minimal discomfort and down time. I’ve had friends that used other doctors for that surgery, just one foot at a time, and are amazed that mine went so well.
About 10 years ago Dr. Korfin performed bunion and hammertoe correction surgery on my son; again the experience was exceptional. Recently I had a growth on the outside of my big toe causing pain/discomfort. Dr. Korfin said it was caused by an ingrown toenail. He removed the growth and fixed the ingrown toenail, again doing an exceptional job. His office staff is first-rate, very courteous and efficient, minimal wait time. The highest complement is from area nurses I’ve met; when Dr. Korfin’s name comes up, they all say he’s the best, “Don’t let anyone else touch your feet!” If you need a podiatrist, look no further.

Bruce Behnke

Dr Korfin is the best foot doctor I know. Around 8 years ago he corrected a major bone spur in my left foot and never had any issues. about a year later he removed tailor bunion for my wife and she is extremely happy with the way her feet look and feel. Then just in October of 2019 I had planter faci in my right foot. The doctor operated on it at the end of October ( Only in the operating room for about 1. 5 hours total recovery) and 6 weeks later I’m as good as new. Thank you Dr. Korfin. You are the best!!

Advanced Surgical Treatment Options

Our doctors perform thorough examinations and spend time listening to our patients, understanding their concerns and providing the best treatment alternatives to meet their needs.

Initially, conservative treatment measures can be implemented to reduce or eliminate your foot pain. Such measures can include:

  • Medications for relieving pain and inflammation
  • Wearing shoes with a wide and high toe box,
  • Padding of bunions
  • Ice applications several times a day

The choice of surgical procedures is based on a physical and radiographic examination of the foot. Because there is actual bone displacement and joint adaptation, most successful bunionectomies require realigning the 1st metatarsal back to its place.

New Patented Revolutionary Treatments

Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction

Dr. Korfin offers a revolutionary patented treatment for bunion correction: Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction. Using the patented Lapiplasty® Procedure’s specially-designed instrumentation to rotate the deviated bone back into its normal anatomical position, this sophisticated treatment secures the correction in place of the affected toe, removing “the bump” and addressing your bunion to correct the root of the problem.

Using our state-of-the-art Surgical Technology & customized pain management options, most patients can walk in a surgical shoe the same day, reducing the pain that comes after a procedure like a bunion correction.
