Q
What is a bunion deformity

A

A bunion is a generic term, generally used to describe a painful swelling about the big toe joint. This deformity can be on the inside aspect or top part of the joint and in some cases is related to arthritis. Most often, bunions are inherited over time from an uncorrected foot type.
