Foot surgery in Mamaroneck
can repair numerous foot deformities and conditions. Two common concerns are Hallux Rigidus, where the big toe has trouble moving up, and bunions. When the big toe is involved, it’s hard to wear heels and there is a painful bump on the top of the first joint. Dr. Haig utilizes the Mann Cheilectomy procedure, a twenty minute operation to remove the spur and get the toe moving normally again, for hundreds of very satisfied patients over many years. The cheilectomy method has been proven to be a very effective procedure to repair hallux rigidus and this is one of Dr. Haig's specialties. For painful bunions, reconstructive surgery is the preferred remedy. A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It forms when your big toe pushes against your next toe, forcing the joint of your big toe to get bigger and stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore. Wearing tight, narrow shoes might cause bunions or make them worse. Bunions also can develop as a result of an inherited structural defect, stress on your foot or a medical condition, such as arthritis. Smaller bunions, called bunionettes, can develop on the joint of your little toe. Dr. Haig uses many surgical approaches to bunions and toe deformities. A consultation followed by a discussion of surgical and non-surgical alternatives is given to every patient before reconstruction.
