Bunion Surgery

Posted by IowaCityASC on Aug 9, 2022 1:35:46 PM

You used to enjoy being active. You’d go for a jog every morning, walk up the stairs on the way to the office, and end your evening with a leisurely stroll around the block. That all changed after your bunion–when wearing a pair of shoes became too painful. Now you spend most of your time with your feet up.
