Metatarsal Surgery

Where are the metatarsals?

Each foot is made up of a number of bones, ligaments and tendons. One specific group of bones is called the metatarsals. These five bones are the long bones found behind each toe that run from your arch to your toe joints. When you walk, run or jump and take off of the ball of your foot, your toes and metatarsals bear a lot of the weight.

Why Are Bunions More Common in Women?

Women tend to experience the pain and disfigurement associated with bunions more often than men. Here we explain why:

It's been said that women often suffer for the sake of fashion. That seems to be especially true when it comes to their feet ­ years of wearing narrow, high ­heeled, pointed shoes can wreak havoc on the structure of women's feet, particularly in the form of bunions.

Toenail problems can affect people of all ages, but tend to be more common in older people. Common causes of fingernail problems include injury, infection and skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis. Causes of toenail problems include trauma, ill-fitting shoes, poor circulation, poor nerve supply and infection.
