Suffering from the pain and discomfort caused by bunions? Watch foot and ankle surgeon, Robert Mills, MD perform bunion surgery and a hammer toe repair from Holy Cross Hospital and the Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Bunions can develop due to hallux valgus, a deformity where the bone which joins to the big toe juts outward on the inside part of the foot. The bump is the bunion which is comprised of bone and soft tissue. The most common cause of bunions is ill-fitting shoes. Most often high heels with narrow, pointed toe boxes cause the bunion due to the unnatural position of the foot.
The Orthopedic Team at Holy Cross is performing bunion surgery at both Holy Cross Hospital and the Physicians Outpatient Surgery Center at the Holy Cross HealthPlex in Fort Lauderdale.
