Rather than ignoring it, resulting in usual worsening of the condition, accept the fact that you have a foot bunion, and then let us help you slow the progression and reduce your discomfort using bunion correction techniques.


Our doctors and specialists are strong believers in having their patients try non-surgical options whenever possible.


Many of our patients in Sherman Oaks find symptom relief through the use of our conservative non-invasive bunion correction treatments:


  • Wearing comfortable shoes with a soft and wide toe box

  • Topical medications

  • New techniques: PRP or amniotic membrane injections 

  • Ice packs

  • Over-the-counter medications: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs 

  • Steroid or cortisone injections used very sparingly

  • Night splints

  • Modification of activities


When you call for a consultation to learn more about the use of non-invasive bunion correction techniques, we can also provide information about our superior results achieved with Botrin Toxin treatments that require no actual cutting.
