Bunion and hammertoe: yes. But it depends on how bad the deformity is. In some mild or simple cases of bunions and hammertoes an orthotic in the shoes can help realign the mechanics of the foot and reduce the deformities. In more severe cases when the deformity is more rigid/ arthritis, it's less likely an insert will work and surgery is indicated. Go see your local Podiatrist and have you foot evaluated
