Can I have a bunion on the outside of my foot?
Just as a bunion is caused by unstable mechanics of the foot, so is a tailor's bunion. It is best to address this condition as early as possible by balancing the mechanics with a custom orthotic. Once a tailor's bunion forms and becomes painful, surgery is often the recommendation for treatment. Catching a tailor's bunion before it is painful and problematic will often avoid the need for surgery.
