Dr. Wishnie, a podiatrist in Piscataway and Hillsborough, NJ explains what a Tailor's Bunion (commonly known as a bunionette) is and what causes them. The most common cause of bunionettes is genetics. Shoes will irritate the problem and may make it worse. A bunionette is located on the outside of the foot near the pinky toe while a bunion is located on the inside near the big toe. The treatment for Tailor's Bunions includes injections, orthotics and possible surgery.
