Our podiatry department offers a full spectrum of services to treat the lower leg, ankle, and foot. We carefully examine your feet to assess the cause of your foot pain. Our imaging will evaluate any fractures and deformities of the foot. We treat ankle fractures, ankle fusions, bunion, hammer toes, and any number of foot-related injuries and conditions. Bunions are a very common cause of foot pain in Fremont. A bunionectomy is a surgical procedure to excise, or remove, a bunion. A bunion is an enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe and is comprised of bone and soft tissue. It is usually a result of inflammation and irritation from poorly fitting (narrow and tight) shoes in conjunction with an overly mobile first metatarsal joint and over-pronation of the foot. Over time, a painful lump appears at the side of the joint, while the big toe appears to buckle and move sideways towards the second toe. New bone growth can occur in response to the inflammatory process, and a bone spur may develop. Therefore, the development of a bunion may involve soft tissue as well as a hard bone spur. The intense pain makes walking and other activities extremely difficult. Since the involved joint is a significant structure in providing weight-bearing stability, walking on the foot while trying to avoid putting pressure on the painful area can create an unstable gait.
At Mission Peak Orthopaedics, we work as a team with our clients to provide the best treatments to eliminate your foot pain in Fremont. We work with you on a one-to-one basis and take into consideration your activity level and lifestyle when coordinating your treatment. There is no need to suffer foot pain any longer.
