At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Lilly Khavari specializes in evaluating and treating bunions, which are a common condition where the big toe joint becomes misaligned and begins to protrude outward. Bunions can cause pain, discomfort, and difficulty wearing shoes.

The evaluation for bunions at Carrollton Foot Center begins with a thorough physical examination and radiographs to assess the extent of the deformity. Depending on the results of the evaluation, Dr. Khavari may recommend a range of treatment options.

If conservative treatments such as orthotics, changes in shoegear, or physical therapy are not effective in managing bunion pain, Dr. Khavari may recommend a bunionectomy. A bunionectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the bony prominence on the big toe joint and realignment of the joint.

Depending on the severity of the bunion, some bunionectomy procedures can be done through minimally invasive techniques. Common bunionectomy procedures include Austin and Akin osteotomies, which involve the removal of a portion of the metatarsal bone and realignment of the toe. Lapidus bunionectomies involve realigning the joint at the base of the big toe and fusing the bone to promote stability.

Dr. Khavari works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals. With her expertise in evaluating and treating bunions, Dr. Khavari emphasizes a comprehensive approach that prioritizes patient comfort and satisfaction.

Overall, Dr. Khavari’s evaluation and treatment approach for bunionectomy at Carrollton Foot Center emphasizes a personalized approach that prioritizes conservative, non-invasive interventions before considering more invasive options. The Carrollton Foot Center team is committed to providing compassionate care and support to patients throughout their evaluation and treatment journey. With Dr. Khavari’s expertise and dedication, patients can feel confident that they are receiving the highest quality care for their bunions.
