Bunions Atlanta, GA

The feet take a lot of steps each and every day. Whether you are a medical professional who walks back and forth in the office seeing patients, a stay-at-home mom who chases toddlers all day long, or an athlete whose performance depends greatly upon the quality and quantity of steps during activity – the feet are essential for movement. Not all feet are created equally, however. Many people develop bunions on the outer portion of their big toes. A bunion is a bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe; occasionally a bunion may develop on the outside of the pinky toe (these are referred to as “bunionettes”). Bunions can be painful if they continue to grow and stick out of the side of the foot. Often, the bunions are red and cause soreness, especially for those who are active.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer excellence in orthopedic and sports medicine. A bulging bump on the outside of the foot at the base of the big toe is the most distinctive symptom. Persistent or intermittent pain and restricted movement of the big toe are also symptoms of a bunion. These symptoms are typical of a more serious side effect that will require treatment. The doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are specialists in minimally invasive treatments, and we specialize in treating foot disorders. Foot disorders can lead to irregular posture, which can lead to serious back, spine, and neck problems. Other foot complications can also result from bunions including: bursitis, hammertoe, and metatarsalgia. Our physicians offer personalized care and treatment options for patients with bunions. We will take your goals into account and will provide proper recommendations.

Many patients are able to relieve the pain and pressure of a bunion with at home treatment options. However, for those who are active or participating in sports a more aggressive form of treatment may be necessary. If you are suffering from a bunion, call Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to set up an appointment for personalized treatment. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
