I have been told by a podiatrist that the only way I can permanently get rid of corns is to have bunion surgery. Is this true?
Corns: Well the usually way to permanently rid of a corn is to remove the bony prominence. In some instances a proper offloading orthotic will reduce the corn and pain that surgery can be delayed or no longer needed.See 1 more doctor answer
Surgical correction: Taylors bunion is corrected in several different ways depending upon the exact cause. Sometimes simply removing the bony prominence will do. Other times the bone must be cut and repositioned. Your podiatrist will evaluate your x-Ray and be able to decide what is best to correct your particular situation.See 1 more doctor answer

Several things: The tendency to develop a bunion is often hereditary. However, poor foot support, improper fitting shoes, trauma, or many musckuloskeletal or neurological conditions all can be factors. The only way to "get rid" of a bunion is with surgical correction. The extent of the surgery needed depends on the severity of the deformity as well as any other contibutory conditions. Shoes/orthotics may help.See 4 more doctor answers
None really: Unfortunately, there are no home remedies for bunions. Toe straightening devices simply don't work, in my experience. Wear roomy shoes and pad them to avoid irritation. When they become too painful, consider surgical correction. Make sure your surgeon realigns the bones. Simply shaving the bump usually allows reoccurrence over time.See 2 more doctor answers
Treating bunions: There is no conservative treatment that will correct a bunion--so called bunion correction splints may ease some symptoms but will not "train" the toe to go straight. Wider shoes, a toe spacer, and tube foam are the most common ways to treat the pain and discomfort. Try those things to see if you can put off surgery for a while (or avoid it altogether!).See 2 more doctor answers

What can I do to improve/get rid of the tailor's bunions on my feet? What could I have done to have gotten them? (But I do wear pointy shoes often)
No Fun- Bunion.: Wearing pointy shoes "often" is probably the leading cause for the development of the tailor bunion in women and possibly men. Genetics and mechanics may also have a part in it, but shoes are the culprit. Changing the shoe style and fit may offer some relief, but the surgical correction is often needed. Without changing the shoe fit, even surgical correction may be disappointing over time.
