I was surprised at the minimal amount of pain post bunion surgery. I was off my pain meds in less than a week, but stayed on anti-inflamatories for a month. Biggest relief was to be back into flat shoes in 8 weeks post-op. This was pricey - but worth it. Helpful hint: I was given a walking boot for a month or so. But I also purchased a surgical shoe which I wore to bed and around the house.

I was experiencing pain in both ankles and wasn't receiving any relief. Dr. Horwitz gave me a plan of action to fix the situation. Within a few weeks I saw a considerably amount of difference of how my feet and ankle felt. They had not felt this good in months.

I came in with pain in my big toe joint. After taking an xray, we discussed the potential need for surgery to correct my issue. However, to first rule out soft tissue damage. I received a cortisone shot. After about 7 days, I noticed significant improvement in my pain. I am about 90% after 2 weeks.
