What is a Tailor's Bunion?

Many people are familiar with the term "bunion". Bunions are a common structural deformity that are related to the big toe area. However, most are less informed about another deformity known as a Tailor's bunion. 

A Tailor’s bunion is another type of structural deformity that occurs on the outer part of your foot just next to your pinky toe area. Oftentimes, when you have a problem related to a Tailor’s bunion, you will experience swelling, redness, and pain, that makes it difficult to walk as well as wear shoes.

When this deformity occurs, it can worsen and become more aggravated over time if not treated. If you suspect that you have a Tailor’s bunion that is causing you pain and making it difficult to walk and wear shoes, contact the experts at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists to receive the treatment you need.
