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!

If you're suffering from a bunion, contact us to make sure that you receive quick and effective bunion removal surgery.


Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment Cure in Bloomfield Hills

Nail fungus is a chronic medical condition that can heavily impact your daily life, and may even lead to serious health issues for patients with diabetes or immune system 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.

The treatment of nail infection is difficult because these fungi live in the layer of dead skin around your nails, in the space under your nail, and in the nail itself, which makes it hard for other treatments to reach and destroy the infection.

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.

How does it work?

The PinPointe FootLaser kills the fungus that lives in and under the toenail. The laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. At the time of the procedure, the toenail will not become instantly clear, it takes time to grow out.

Is the procedure painful?

Most people feel no pain. Some people feel a warming sensation and very few feel a pinprick.

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.
