Dr Ng is helpful with prescriptions and helps lessen the pain in my lower back. He’s a very friendly and cheerful person to talk to, and he’s also very reassuring. I will be back again in two months to get my supplements.

Sorry, Bunions Don’t Just Disappear. Here’s The Best Solution, According To An Experienced Orthopaedic Surgeon
Sorry, Bunions Don’t Just Disappear. Here’s The Best Solution, According To An Experienced Orthopaedic Surgeon

You may have experienced bunions at some point in your life. Also known as Hallux Valgus (not the name of some Harry Potter wizardly spell), these painful bony bumps that develop at the big toe joint can really be no fun at all.

You may wonder where the heck they come from, and whether any possible treatments exist.

Dr Sean Ng, an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a special interest in Sports Surgery, Minimally Invasive Foot & Ankle Surgery, hosted a DoctorxDentist Session and shed some light on these pesky nuisances.

Ask Dr Sean Ng: How To Treat Bunions
Ask Dr Sean Ng: How To Treat Bunions

Bunions are a common condition that a lot of Singaporeans suffer from. The malaligned bone is not caused by wearing tight shoes, although that can worsen the condition. Bunions run in families, because foot type (shape and structure) is hereditary, and some types are just more prone to bunions than others.

Dr Sean Ng answered readers' questions on how to treat bunions.

For patients with a connective tissue problem, the bunions are usually a result of the lax connective tissue. Minimally invasive surgery will not be a suitable method for correction of the bunions. I would need to assess the foot, the bunion, and the overall “laxity” o...

For elbow bursitis, it depends on several factors. Mainly size - if it’s big, it is very unlikely to become smaller and will cause a lot of discomfort and inconvenience; and whether it’s infected (which has to be treated first). Assuming there is no infection, we can ei...

The “lump” circled is on the dorsum of the foot. Bone spurs are usually at the base or back of the heel. Sometimes patients with midfoot arthritis may have bone spurs on the dorsum. Have any X-rays/ scans been done? Management will depend on the size/ depth and sympto...

Hi, X-rays will not show actual inflammation in your lower back. It does show: the alignment of the spine whether there are any fractures, or perhaps indirectly show spasm of the lumbar muscles by showing the abnormal Alignment of the spine. To show actual infla...

I am sorry to hear of your injury, and it does sound quite bad with a fracture + sprain. When was the injury? And what has been done thus far - crutches/ cast/ medication? You would need to get your foot & ankle examined. X-rays would have shown the fracture - it’s import...

To see bunions, you would have to consult an orthopaedic surgeon, preferably someone that subspecialises in foot and ankle surgery. He would be able to assess your feet, and advise you on the proper management of the bunions. It can be either conservative or surgical management, and...

Hi, The surgical indications for a bunion, whether it is a mild/moderate/severe one, is: 1. Pain 2. Progressive deformity Surgery is never indicated for cosmetic reasons. The type of surgical correction would be dependent on the severity of the bunions. Kind regards Dr Sean Ng ...

It would be a bit difficult to answer your question, as there are many potential factors. Your fracture must have been pretty serious to have a radial head replacement instead of an open reduction internal fixation. Were there any other concomitant injuries (ligament, capsule etc) t...

To answer your question, it depends on what type of elbow surgery you’re referring to. It can either be a fracture , ligament, tennis elbow/ tendinous surgery or a combination of all - both bony and soft tissue. An elbow arthroscopic debridement May have a quicker healing and ...

I think Dr Dinesh has summarised it quite well. Full thickness Chondral ulcers on the patella are quite difficult to manage. Failed conservative management , would usually mean a patient has to consider surgical intervention. Intra-articular visco-supplementation can definitely be c...

Sorry to hear that your shoulder still hurts after 3 months. That may mean that something may have been damaged inside the shoulder joint. It could be a tendon, or part of the capsule that supports the shoulder joint. Having pain for 3 months is not normal. I would advise yo...

Bunions get progressively worse with time. They do not reverse, and it really just depends when you want to get them corrected. An example of a normal toes vs overlapping toes: It is an anatomical and genetic problem, and they will not be able to reverse and go back to t...

Bunions are not life and death surgery. It really is a matter of how much discomfort and pain it is causing you, and how much deformity there is. The deformity can be that of just the big toe, or sometimes it may affect the other toes as the bunion gets progressively worse. Bu...

Hi Jasmine Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for mild to moderate cases of bunions. But it will depend on other factors as well. There is a higher recurrence rate for severe bunions if MIS correction is done for them. I would need to examine your feet more...

Looking at your MRI, and hearing about your symptoms, I think there are a few things to consider. People with ankle ligament injuries, if left untreated, invariably complain of either persistent/ chronic pain, or instability. And if it’s pain, it can be due to the torn l...
31 May 2018
Hi, Thank you for your email. I see plenty of torn ankle ligaments, and that is something that is extremely common. Often it starts from a simple sprain. If not taken care of properly, this may lead to either prolonged pain, or instability. These are the two most common compla...

Hi Joce Thank you for your question. From the pictures, your bunions are definitely suitable for minimally invasive (MIS) / keyhole surgical correction. I would have to examine them more thoroughly and look at the X-rays to be doubly sure. A painful bunion is an indication for...
13 Apr 2018
Thank you for your question. It’s something I get asked very frequently. Unfortunately, the answer would be a big emphatic yes. 90% of bunions are genetic (do see your mother’s, grandma’s, sisters or female cousins feet). Most people would try thi...

thank you for the questions. 2 months would have been more than sufficient time for a superficial abscess to heal by secondary intention. As Dr Ang has mentioned, the pictures do look like the abscess has healed. All the purplish tissue you mention are usually the scar tissue th...
