Let’s face it – bunions are awful! Not all bunions create pain, but even the ones that don’t hurt are unsightly, and over time they might contribute to your discomfort – especially when you’re wearing shoes. Untreated bunions can also lead to other foot conditions, such as hammertoes, corns, and calluses.
Bunions may occur on one or both foot. Whether you’re just noticing a change in the structure of your toe or if you’re at your wits’ end trying to find shoes that don’t hurt, we have solutions for bunions that can help! Ask about how we can effectively keep your bunions from getting worse and help the spots you already have to feel better.
If you’ve been putting off your appointment because you’re afraid that you’ll be referred for bunion surgery, then stop! It’s true that some bunions require surgery, but there are plenty of non-surgical options to try first. At Weil Foot & Ankle Institute, surgery is always our last resort.

We are requiring patients and anyone accompanying them to arrive for their appointment with a face covering, (such as a scarf, bandana, t-shirt, handmade mask or other) that covers their nose and mouth already in place. If they or their guests arrive without one, they will be asked to return to their car to put one on or reschedule their appointment. We are unable to issue surgical masks to patients at this time. As such, beginning on the morning of April 8th, we will require patients and visitors to arrive for their appointment already wearing a face covering.
