Causes and Treatment for Tailor's Bunions, known as Bunionettes

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.

Thank you for explaining this. I've been looking into bunion surgery in Crystal Lake. I'm a bit nervous about it. This helped answer my questions.
