Foot and ankle specialists Dr. Tyson Green with Center for
Orthopaedics will be the speaker at "Walk Away from Bunions,” a free community
seminar on Thursday, September 20, at 5:30 pm.
A bunion is an enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe that
forms when the bone or tissue at the big toe joint moves out of place. If left untreated, the condition can become quite painful and lead to
arthritis in the foot. Bunions are more
common in women than men.
Dr. Green will discuss the causes of bunion, prevention
strategies, non-surgical treatment options, and new advances in bunion surgery
at the seminar, which will take place Center for Orthopaedics in Lake Charles,
located at 1747 Imperial Blvd.
Attendees can register to win a pair of custom orthotic inserts at the seminar. Seating is limited and pre-registration is
requested. Refreshments will be served.
