Bunions

A bunion is one of the most common big (great) toe problems. It is a shifting or misalignment of bone in the joints of the feet. In addition to causing pain, a bunion changes the shape of the foot, causing further problems in the adjacent toes. Bunions may be caused by heredity, incorrect mechanics of the foot, and ankle arthritis, or injury. Improper shoe wear or poorly fitted shoes may exacerbate a bunion deformity. To determine the best treatment for your problem, Dr. Fanous will evaluate your condition clinically as well as radiographically (X-Ray).

Bunionettes (Taylor’s Bunion)

A Tailor’s Bunion is a small bunion on the outside of the foot. It is smaller than a bunion as its name suggests. Bunionettes are caused by an overgrowth or swelling of the soft tissue covering the joint, a congenital defect, or even the actual bowing of the 5th metatarsal bone. X-Rays and a physical exam will determine the best course of treatment.

Plantar Warts

Warts are caused by a virus and are highly contagious. Recurrence is quite common. Plantar warts are often misdiagnosed as corns or calluses on the bottom of the foot. They may have the appearance of brown-red or black spots. Warts may be treated by chemical removal, surgical curettage, laser surgery or cryosurgery. The Doctor will determine the best treatment after a clinical diagnosis.

Morton’s Neuroma/Neuritis

A neuroma is a painful swelling or growth of nerve tissue most commonly between the 3rd and 4th toe bones. Neuromas may be caused by tight or poorly fitted shoes. High heels may also contribute to painful neuromas. Symptoms may include a sharp, burning, tingling, or numbing sensation in the ball of the foot. There are different treatment options available and the Doctor will determine the best course of action based on clinical and diagnostic evaluations.

Neuropathy, Ulcer & Wound Care Management

There are over 240,000 diabetic patients who lose their limbs to amputation because of lack of care and early detection of small abrasions or wounds that exacerbate ulcers. Initiation of early treatment is key to limb salvage. Ulcers are treated conservatively and sometimes surgically to prevent amputation.

Plantar Fasciitis (Heal Pain)

Flat Feet (Fallen Arches)

Flat feet is a deformity in which the arches of the foot collapse, with the entire sole of the foot coming into complete or near-complete contact with the ground. Some individuals (an estimated 20–30% of the general population) have an arch that simply never develops in one foot or both feet. Treatment may include using orthoses such as an arch support, specific exercises, or surgery as recommended by the Doctor.

Common Nail Problems

An ingrown nail is the result of a nail growing into soft tissue skin surrounding itself. A thickening, crumbling, or discolored nail may be due to fungal infections of the nail. Black or blue nails may be caused by small, sudden, and repetitive micro-trauma or injury to a toe. If your toe is black or blue and is not injured, see your Doctor immediately.
