Bunion Treatment in Omaha, NE


  • Bony bump near the joint at the base of big toe.
  • Joint redness.
  • Joint pain.
  • Skin irritation over the bump.

A bunion is an enlargement of the joint in the first toe, which causes the bones in the joint to become misaligned. Genetics and improper footwear are both factors in the development of bunions. Once this condition starts, it tends to worsen over time. If left untreated, the big toe will begin to point inward and a bulge will develop on the side of the foot, resulting in pain and dis-figuration.

Bunions can also lead to calluses, ingrown toenails, hammertoes and improper walking biomechanics. You do not have to suffer the pain and embarrassment of unsightly bunions. Even simple treatments, such as special shoes, custom orthotics (arch supports) and padding, may help relieve the discomfort of bunions. We also offer MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery) called bunionectomy, which can be accomplished without any hardware (screws or pins)!

If surgery is necessary, an x-ray and exam can determine if you are a candidate for a state-of-the-art procedure. If you are a candidate, Dr. Beth Klawitter can reduce the bunion with small incisions. There is no unsightly, long scar that may occur from traditional foot surgery. We are among the few doctors who perform this innovative procedure, which minimizes discomfort and recovery time. Many patients are back at work in only a few days, and most insurance plans cover the procedure. Minimally invasive foot surgeries can be done on a multitude of conditions, such as hammertoes, bunions, bone spurs, and tailored bunions, just to name a few.
