Almost 50% Increase In Bunion Patients Since 2016: Dr Mark Reyneker Weighs In

Published 30 April 2021

In the past 5 years, there has been a startling 30% increase in patients seeking treatment for bunions at Singapore General Hospital, and up to 40% more bunion patients visiting private practices like Family Podiatry Centre. This can be attributed to an increasing awareness of foot conditions like bunions which lead those suffering from them to seek professional treatment instead of relying on home remedies like they normally would, or simply leaving them alone. 

Bunions are caused largely by genetics and can seriously affect quality of life in serious cases, as they can be painful and prevent victims from walking properly.

Our director and one of our podiatrists, Dr Mark Reyneker was interviewed by Singapore’s premier Chinese-language television channel, Channel 8, to help shed light on the issue. Watch the interview below!
