Common Foot and Ankle Conditions Treated:
Sprains & Strains
Hallux Valgus (Bunion)
What is hallux valgus?
If the joint that connects your big toe to your foot is enlarged, swollen or sore you may have a bunion. Hallux valgus is associated with wearing narrow shoes or high heels, a family history, and is more common in women (90% of bunions). A progressive bunion may lead to other disabling foot problems such as corns, calluses and hammer toes.
With a bunion, the foot widens at the joint (metatarsophalangeal joint) and the rest of the big toe (hallux) impinges on the other toes. Most often this process happens idiopathically and there is no identifiable direct cause. Over time the deformity may progress or become arthritic.
What can be done to treat my bunion without surgery?
If your bunion has progressed to the point where you have difficulty walking or experience pain despite accommodative shoes, you may electively undergo surgery to correct the malalignment of the toe. Dr. Miller has several techniques to ease your pain based on the individual deformity. A comprehensive evaluation of the foot can guide you with bunion treatment options. Dr. Miller strives to create the most reliably successful outcome in a safe manner.
Surgery can be done as an outpatient with minimal pain in the immediate postoperative period.
Foot and ankle injuries during athletics are common. Fortunately, Dr. Miller is an experienced board certified orthopaedic specialist in just such injuries. No injury is too big or small. From sprains and ligament injuries, tendon tears, fractures, muscle injuries and cartilage and joint problems, Dr. Miller will go over an effective treatment plan individualized to you based on the latest treatments and research.
Ankle replacement and arthritis treatment
While knee and hip replacements have been commonplace for several years, ankle replacement is now a viable option for patients with pain due to arthritis of the ankle. A previous injury, old fracture, a history of rheumatoid or simply a family history of arthritis may predispose you to chronic ankle pain.
Learn about your options for ankle pain and discuss with the foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Miller.
