Dr Sterling is able to perform a minimally-invasive corrective surgery to address bunions. Dr Sterling performs keyhole surgery to correct the deformity of the foot that bunions can cause and reduce the pain caused from the bunion in doing so.

Bunion surgery questions and answers

Bunions are bony protrusions along the inside of the foot, at the bottom of the big toe. Bunions often cause a misshaping of the big toe.

Bunions can occur as a result of a family history, and this is the most common cause of bunions. Bunions can also occur following an injury, or from sports which cause repeated stress to the foot. Shoe choices can also contribute to the formation or severity of bunions.

Not all bunions require surgery. Dr Sterling prefers to only undertake bunion surgery when necessary due to pain being experienced as a result of the bunion, due to the associated risks of any surgery. Sometimes, certain footwear choices can assist with the management of bunions.
