Bunions

From our Mayo podiatry clinic, Podi Footcare offers a full range of bunion treatments and bunion pain management solutions. A bunion is the term used to describe the lumpy bone that forms on the side of a person’s big toe.

Bunions are a slight deformity that is most commandingly found on the side of the big toe although smaller bunions – bunionettes – can also develop on the joint of the little toe.
