Q&A with Dr. Carl Kihm, DPM of Village Podiatry Centers

Dr. Carl Kihm, DPM Village Podiatry CentersQuestion: I have a bunion. Do I need surgery?

Surgery can be needed for patients struggling with regular pain, limitations in function or footwear and conditions that are progressively worse or causing deformity. These patients must be assessed individually to determine their best surgical options. Mild deformities can be corrected with a bone shaving and cutting procedure to realign the big toe. The correction is maintained with pins or screws as the bones heal, and patients are generally able to walk the same day of the procedure. –Dr. Carl Kihm, DPM of Village Podiatry Centers
