What is a Tailor's Bunion?

A Tailor's bunion is a deformity that affects the fifth toe and metatarsal bone (bone of the ball of thre 5th toe).

The condition is often progressive if left untreated, it cannot be corrected without surgery. As the bump on the fifth toe gets larger it can cause pain from excessive friction against footwear.

The osteotomy procedure allows correction of the Tailor’s bunion with the use of two screw fixations.
