Michael Zapf, surgeon and podiatrist in Thousand Oaks and Agoura Hills, discusses the presence of a bunion and tailor's bunion.

Bunions and Tailor’s Bunions together!

One of Dr. Zapf’s surgeries today reminds us that there you can have a bunion on BOTH sides of your feet. Most everyone knows that the joint behind the big toe can form a bunion but the one behind the little toe can also form a bunion and hurt. In fact this surgery was on a 27 year old woman who had more pain from her little bunion, called a tailor’s bunion or a bunionette, then she did from her big bunion. They were both corrected with a surgical procedure over at the Thousand Oaks Surgery Hospital. The surgery took less than one hour for both bunions to be corrected. This patient will be wearing a post-operative shoe for about a month and then tennis shoes. Since her left foot was done she can drive as soon as next Monday.
