Bunion treatment and surgery practices:

Bunions usually form when the big toe pushes toward the second toe because of prolonged pressure on the feet, forcing the big toe joint in the opposite direction. Extra bone grows where the base of the big toe meets the foot, crowding your other toes and causing pain. The tendency to develop bunions is usually hereditary. Dr. Gross and Dr. Foreman specialize in the treatment of bunion deformities, both surgically and non-surgically.

Do I need to receive surgery?

Suffering from a bunion hurts, but there are ways that some people may find pain relief for their feet. One of these ways is wearing a larger shoe size to open up the toe area, or to help cushion the bunion with a protective pad. If these methods aren't working for your pain relief, you may need to receive bunion surgery.

We'll then take an X-ray of your foot to diagnose your situation and determine the kind of surgery that will be best for you and your foot. With over 100 different types of bunion surgery out there, we'll make sure that you receive the one that's right for you!

Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment Cure in Clawson

Nail fungus is a chronic condition that impacts your quality of life and can even lead to serious health problems for patients with diabetes or immune disorders.

The most common symptoms of fungal nails are the thickening and/or discoloration of the nail (white, black, yellow or green). The nail may become brittle and crumble around the edges, or even break off from the toe (or finger) completely. If left untreated, the infection can become painful. The skin may also become inflamed and painful underneath and around the nail.

Possible treatments include topical medication, oral medication, surgery, and laser. Our doctors were the first in Michigan to use laser treatment for fungal nails and have treated almost 2,000 patients with the PinPointe FootLaser.

What Are The Signs or Symptoms of Nail Fungus?

  • Yellow streaks in the skin under the nail, or nail bed, and on the underside of the nail
  • Buildup of bits and pieces of skin and nail fragments under the nail
  • Discolored and thickened nail that may separate from the skin under the nail
  • Brittle, broken, and thickened nails
  • White spots or streaks on the nail surface
  • Soft and powdery nail surface, which appear as the infection worsens
  • Damaged, crumbly, and brown or gray nail surface, with no separation of the nail from the underlying skin.

Will I need more than one treatment?

One treatment kills the fungus for most people. Your doctor will determine if you need additional follow-up care.

Is there a recovery period?

No time for recovery is needed. The patient can walk out comfortably immediately following the procedure.

Will the fungus come back?

The fungus is killed after one treatment and typically the provider will recommend care techniques to reduce recurrence of the infection. There is a chance of reinfection because the fungus is present everywhere in the environment.
