What is it?
A bunion is a misaligned great toe. A “bump” may be seen on the side or the top of your great toe joint. Poor foot mechanics are often the cause of bunions.
- Pain or stiffness at the great toe joint
- Redness or swelling at the great toe joint
- Increased pain in high heels or tight shoes
Bunion Treatment in Cincinnati:
- A physical exam or x-rays will help determine the stage of your bunion
- Mild conditions are treated with orthotics to control poor foot mechanics
- Medication can be used if joint pain exists
- Bunion surgery can be performed by your Cincinnati podiatrist to realign the bone and joint if needed as a last option
4.6 Rating From 13 Reviews.on 24, Jul 2017I’ve been to 4 orthopedic surgeons very highly recommended however they didn’t help me since July [4 months]! I broke my ankle. I am so thrilled to have found Dr Kristin Titko, she has been the ONLY doctor that I feel can help me! I have faith in her.Jillianon 24, Jul 2017I’ve been a patient of Dr. Titko’s since about 2006 and I have referred multiple friends to her. I’ve seen her for several different conditions, some chronic and some acute, and I always appreciate the approach she takes, which is to get me back to my normal activities as soon as possible.Christaon 24, Jul 2017I first met Dr. Kristin Titko at a diabetes focus group at UC. Her presentation on various options to treat diabetes complications of the legs and feet sounded hopeful, as I had visited another foot care specialist who advised me he could do nothing to help me. In speaking with Dr. Kris after the meeting concerning my issues, she told me to come see her. Thankfully I made an appointment and will remain ever grateful to her for her professional care. Dr. Titko is friendly and caring, and listened to the problems I was experiencing (toe fungus and planter’s fibromas on both feet.) I was treated with laser therapy which completely healed my toe fungus and referred to a specific physical therapist who completely cleared up the fibromas in both feet. Additionally, she took biopsies which confirmed that my legs and feet were free of neuropathy (which is music to the ears of a Type 1 diabetic.) I continue to see her periodically for checkups. All things being said, Dr. Titko’s professional expertise allowed me take my life back by bringing me to a level of physical activity that I hadn’t experienced in several years. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dr. Titko to anyone who is looking for a foot care specialist, especially diabetics. She treats you like family and you can place your trust in her.LindaI just love her!on 01, Feb 2018I heard about Dr. Titko through my mom. I went to Dr Titko after having some real bad pain in my foot which turned out to be a stress fracture. Dr Titko also saw that I had bunion surgery on the same foot (a year before) and not even 3 weeks later I was in to have reconstructive bunion surgery and she did an awesome job and completely corrected my surgery that a previous Dr. had done. The recovery was amazing! She’s very informative and I just love her!Sarahon 24, Jul 2017Dr Titko is by far one of the most professional doctors I’ve ever met. She treats you like family and ensures any problems you have are taken care of as quickly as possible. I was working a job where I had to stand on concrete all day in boots. She made custom Orthotics for my boots that did wonders for my feet and helped relieve the pain. Thank you for everything Dr Titko.-Scott Dr. Titko is fantastic! I had an ingrown toenail that had been bothering me off and on, and affected my running. She removed it and now my toe feels so much better. I would highly recommend Dr. Titko to anyone needing a great podiatrist.RIchon 24, Jul 2017Six weeks out from my 2nd Ironman and planters facilities shows up. Nothing short of a miracle, Dr. Titko attacked this problem and on race day there was no pain and no excuses (with my foot), a PR for my 140.6 course at Ironman Louisville.Kevinon 24, Jul 2017I’ve been seeing Dr. Titko for a few years now, and she help me fix my cracked, dry feet and make them beautiful again. I thank you and my man thanks you too! You’re great!Maggieon 24, Jul 2017I would like to thank Dr. Titko for getting me back on the tennis courts after a 5 month layoff. I know I should have sought treatment earlier, but being a Man I was stubborn! Don’t be like me, if you hurt go see her you will not regret it!John WAwesome Folks Here!on 20, Feb 2018Really awesome folks here! Super smart, personable, and friendly. My foot felt so much better after a Friday visit, I nearly sent in flowers the following Monday.KaizenOne of a Kind Doctoron 27, Jan 2018I have spent the past 3 months interning and shadowing with Dr. Titko at her Liberty Township practice. I have never met a more meticulous person who loves what they do more than Dr. Titko. Every patient felt like a family member and she made sure to her best ability that all the proper procedures and treatments were administered. There is no one that I would trust more than Dr. Titko. She is truly a one of kind doctor. You don't see doctor's truly caring for their patient's anymore, and that is exactly what Dr. Titko does.Victoriaon 24, Jul 2017I have a job that requires me to wear heels and stand on my feet all day. After years of doing this I have developed a neuroma that has become very painful. I saw Dr. Titko and she gave me options on how to go about correcting this problem. After several visits I’m happy to report I am painfree and able to walk comfortably in my work shoes once again. Thank you Dr. Titko !Staceyon 24, Jul 2017I met you at the West Chester Jingle Mingle in December. In our conversation I mentioned that my son Landen Myers was having some problems with his feet and after meeting with 2 specialists already, the problem was getting worse, not better. After one meeting with you and six weeks later, your recommended home treatment has him pain free and nearly back to 100%. He plays baseball for Ohio State and his first game is two weeks. THANK YOU for getting him healthy in time for the season!Scotton 24, Jul 2017After experiencing foot pain for way too long, I set up an appointment with Dr. Titko. Dr. Titko immediately identified what was causing the pain. She took care of an issue I was having to ease the pain, took x-rays and will have a treatment plan by my next visit. I truly appreciate her approach and respect for my time. Dr. Titko was professional and focused but, also very personable with a great sense of humor which made for a pleasant experience despite why I was there! Her staff was friendly and efficient getting me back right on time and out quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Titko to anyone experiencing similar issues.Marcia
