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 DxD Session and shed some light on these pesky nuisances.

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.
