Bunion

Bunions or even tailor's bunions can be extremely painful and difficult to find fitted shoe gear. There is a definite genetic component to the development of bunions themselves. In addition we see certain shoe gear or activities can increase can increase the size of bunions. Anything that puts increased forefoot pressure creates increased force to the bunions themselves. I often times will recommend a course of conservative care for people that have not tried these options for their bunions.

At our clinic, we created a special protocol for bunion patients and have extremely successful options for conservative bunion care. There are many great stretching and strengthening exercises for the foot structure. In addition there is a plethora of options including prescription orthotics that our clinic specializes in to control the development of the bunion. In addition we have many different options for bunions that are starting to produce pain and arthritic deformities of the foot. Our clinic takes the latest scientific research in conjunction with years of experience to maximize the outcome of conservative bunion options. If you continue to suffer from bunion pain and wanted to explore conservative options, give us a call at 425-391-8666 or schedule an appointment online.


Dr. Timothy Young Talks About Anesthesia and Bunion Surgery

The vast majority of bunion surgery is done with the combination of local anesthetic and IV sedation. IV sedation is also sometimes referred to as twilight sleep. Very similar to when you have a colonoscopy.

We have the Anesthesia team come to our certified surgical suite and start the IV, make you comfortable and then you are asleep. While you are asleep we administer the local anesthetic. You don’t feel the Injection because you are sleeping and when you wake up after the procedure, your foot is numb and you have no pain. The local anesthetic can last for 24 hours or longer. This is excellent for the initial post procedure pain control.
