Correcting Foot Abnormalities to Minimize Discomfort
Foot deformities can often go years without needing any type of treatment or never need treatment at all. However, some deformities cause dysfunction and discomfort, which is when medical intervention becomes necessary. At Newtown Foot & Ankle Specialists, we treat a wide range of foot and ankle deformities. Our doctor is one of the best surgeons in the Newtown area, dedicated to providing our patients with a comfortable environment and quality care.

Causes & Treatment of Bunion Deformity
One of the conditions we often treat at Newtown Foot & Ankle Specialists is bunions. Bunions are extremely painful and can cause discomfort when you wear a certain type of shoes, run, or participate in any type of strenuous activity. Depending on the severity of your bunions, conservative treatment like orthotics or medication may be adequate. However, many cases of bunions require surgery to provide sufficient relief of your symptoms.
