Bunionettes, otherwise known as Tailor’s Bunion, occur when the joint behind the little toe becomes enlarged. Most common in women, bunionettes can cause pain, inflammation, ulceration and infection.
When the enlarged joint worsens due to arthritis, joint instability or wearing of high heels or narrow-fitting shoes, you can often find relief by wearing wider shoes or taking anti-inflammatory medications.
However, if your symptoms continue, a simple outpatient procedure can allow you to resume your everyday activities without pain.
Surgical treatment for Bunionettes can help correct the deformity. When you come to our office for an evaluation, we’ll select from several different procedures based on your foot type, activity level, age and other factors. The surgery is an outpatient procedure performed with a local anesthesia and requires a short recuperative time in a surgical shoe. There’s no reason to endure persistent pain from bunionettes when help is just a phone call away. Contact our office today to make an appointment.
