Dr DiPalma Talks About Bunions

GET_THE_PLAYER TO_SEE_THIS_PLAYER

A bunion is a structural deformity of the bones and the joint between the foot and big toe, and may be painful.  It presents as an enlargement of bone or tissue around the joint at the base of the big toe (metatarsophalangeal joint). The big toe may turn in toward the second toe (angulation), and the tissues surrounding the joint may be swollen and tender.

Today the term usually is used to refer to the pathological bump on the side of the great toe joint. The bump is the swollen bursal sac and/or an osseous (bony) deformity that has grown on the mesophalangeal joint (where the first metatarsal bone and hallux meet).
