A bunion is a deformity of the foot consisting of both bone and soft tissue. A bunion is a bony bump that forms at the base of your big toe where it connects with a foot bone called the first metatarsal. This causes your big toe to point toward your second toe. Bunions can be a very painful condition. Bunion removal at Iowa City ASC is an out patient surgical procedure that corrects the deformed area near the big toe.
A hammertoe is when a toe becomes bent upward in the middle causing it to resemble a hammer. It is a toe deformity that may require surgery if there is pain even after non-surgical treatment. Hammertoes often occur in conjunction with other toe problems. There are a number of surgical techniques that can be performed at Iowa City ASC to correct the type of hammertoe condition that you might have.
