No one wants to hear the word “surgery” especially on the foot. Weeks of therapy with eventual recovery, and loss of work time are sometimes necessary when conservative measures fail. That is why, at Henderson Podiatry we offer in-office procedures for some conditions. In the video, Dr. Patterson explains how a hammertoe can be corrected in our office.
A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. They can develop from an inherited structural defect, excess stress on your foot, or can result from an existing medical condition.
For the most part, bunions require no medical treatment. However, if you are experiencing one or more of the following, a podiatrist can help alleviate your symptoms.
Hammertoes are a result of a contraction at the toe joint causing pressure when shoes are worn or during ambulation. Corns or ulcers on the tops of the toes can form and can become painful. Early intervention with an x-ray diagnosis can sometimes prevent progression of the deformity. There are conservative as well as surgical treatments for this deformity.
Henderson Podiatry has now begun to schedule consultations for LAPIPLASTY. Please call the office to see if this new bunion procedure is right for you !
What is Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction®?
Patented, advanced technology designed to correct all 3 dimensions of the bunion at the root of the problem (unstable joint). Learn how Lapiplasty® has changed the game.
A common misconception is that a bunion is simply an overgrowth of bone that can be “shaved off”. However, bunions are complex, 3D deformities caused by an unstable joint in the middle of the foot that allows your bone to drift out of alignment.
Advanced surgical technology returns your entire bone to normal 3D alignment and the unstable joint is secured with patented, titanium plates to get back on your feet in < 2 weeks (in a walking boot).1-4
