Learning About Bunions |

Christopher Hodgkins, Orthopedic Surgeon at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says a bunion is a deformity of the big toe; it is a bump on the inside of the toe and it is the big toe drifting towards the lesser toes.

He explains this condition causes pain over the bump, which is going to rub on the shoe. Hodgkins points out the size of the bunion does not determine the treatment for it, there are lots of patients who have a very small bunion and have a lot of pain, for example.
