20,000 Bunion Success Stories in 25+ years with our Revolutionary Painless Techniques

UFAI is at the forefront of bunion treatment and correction. We educate our patients about their foot conditions and provide clarity, caring and individualized treatment options.

There's no such thing as "one procedure fits all" with us.

With the highest success rates in the country, our patients experience a safer, shorter, virtually scar-free and significantly less painful recovery. It's what we're known for.

  • If you suffer from bunions, you’re in good company. They are one of the most common foot problems, affecting an estimated 25-33% of adults.

  • Bunions are categorized as mild, moderate or severe and their severity will dictate the treatment recommendations.

  • Bunions don't always mean surgery. Read several helpful strategies to ease bunion pain without surgery.

  • While the symptoms of bunions and big toe arthritis can be similar, their causes and treatment options vary.

  • One surgery does not fit all. Every bunion surgery is different and should be tailored to each patients' needs.

  • This happens when a bunion returns after surgery, or when additional problems develop. Revision surgeries account for about 30% of what we do.

  • Our experts answer your frequently asked questions about bunion treatments, surgery and recovery.

  • Our physicians address these common bunion myths so you can better understand the facts and treatment options available to you.
