Real Housewife Too Scared for Bunion Surgery


Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Houston podiatrist discusses Real housewives worried about bunion surgeryOn a recent episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Claudia Jordan went to the doctor to see what could be done about her bunions (apparently, they disgusted Kenya Moore, who accompanied Claudia.) The doctor told her they could be corrected, but she’d need to have surgery. The Housewife opted to skip the surgery, prompting online haters to speculate that she was too broke to go under the knife and take time off work during her recovery (did I mention that Claudia was recently voted ‘Most Hate Housewife?’)

Claudia had this to say about the allegations: “People have asked me if it was a financial restriction that has prevented me from going ahead with the surgery, and that is not the case at all…I cannot lie, I am afraid of the pain and I’m also scared of the surgery, because you have to remove a part of your joint in your toe! That is terrifying to say the least. I am getting pretty close to convincing myself that it’s for the best and will keep you all updated if and when I decide to go under the knife.”

Normally, I don’t find a lot of ground between myself and reality TV stars but, for once, this Houston podiatrist completely understands where that Atlanta Housewife is coming from. Bunion surgery is a big deal; the recovery period is tough and painful. For that reason, I strongly urge patients to come and see me when they first notice signs of a bunion’s formation. At that stage, we can treat the problem with non-invasive measures and, most likely, stop the progression to the point where surgery is necessary.

If you’ve noticed a bunion or other problem developing on your feet, don’t hesitate—make an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider immediately.
