Foot Corn Removal Surgery is designed to wipe out highly resistant foot corns after conservative treatment has failed. Foot corns are painful formations of thick skin on the foot and toes that look like a hard pebble. Many people can even form a corn within a callus, this is a hard pebble surrounded by a softer callus over top of it. There are many reasons and theories for why corns with calluses occur, but it there is no point really getting into it because the treatments are all the same!
Foot Corn Removal Surgery
Pain occurs from the corns and calluses because as you walk on them, they tear away from the skin underneath them and it is possible to form a callus blister and even an ulceration underneath them. The goal of treatment is to reduce both corns and calluses as well as keep them soft and eventually remove the deformity or biomechanical problem that is causing them. Foot Corn Surgery is rarely needed, but usually foot corn is extremely effective and prevents the corns from ever coming back.
