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.
