What is a Forefoot Deformity Hallux Valgus?
Hallux valgus is a frequent deformity of the first metatarsal joint. It occurs particularly in women and is commonly known as “bunions”. It appears as a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe. Bunions worsen as we get older and can eventually cause pain and deformity of the other toes as well.
