Hallux Valgus

Bunion (Hallux valgus)

Bunion or other toe deformities are painful and unsightly deformities which trouble foot structures, especially wearing shoes (for the happyness or all women!). Genetic familiarity is the main cause of this mysterious trend in the valgus angle between the big toe and the other toes up to 5-6°; after this limit there is a serious trouble for the ajacent toes. Consequent mechanical conflicts and worsening deformities can be painful and drive patients to the doctor. Surgical correction, even when preventive, is a valuable option for those patients with familiarity to bunion.
