Corn Removal Surgery NYC

Corn Removal Surgery NYC

Corn is an unsightly localized lesion of hard, thickened skin typically found over a pressure point. Corn is caused by rubbing a bone against your soft tissue, causing the skin to thicken and harden, forming what is referred to as corn. Conservative treatment of corns consists of shaving thickened skin, shoe modification, and treatment with custom orthotics.

Surgical options for corn treatment typically involve modifying the bone, causing the pressure point under the corn. There are two different types of corns: soft and hard. Depending on the type of corn, its location, and what is causing it to form, your foot doctor in NYC will suggest a procedure to correct it.

Hard Corns

Hard corns are dry and often have a hardcore. These become incredibly painful often feeling as though a rock is in your shoe. If you have hard corn, the best NYC podiatrist’s suggest surgery if: 

- Non-invasive treatments don’t work 

- The corn has become painful 

- The corn is due to a bone issue that needs to be corrected

Corn always has some biomechanical imbalance causing its presentation, and your foot doctor must correct the underlying deformity for successful resolution of the skin lesion. For example, corn on a pinky toe is often due to a hammertoe rubbing against a shoe. Thus the best podiatrist in NYC would correct the hammertoe in addition to excising the corn. Your foot doctor in NYC will discuss what is necessary to provide a long-term solution to your painful corn and answer any questions you may have. 

Soft Corns

Soft corns result from tissue build-up in a moisture-prone area coupled with bone rubbing against the skin. Soft corns most commonly show up between your toes. This type of corn is often associated with athlete’s foot, and the web space between your fourth and fifth toes is the most prone to this infection. Soft corns are also prone to bacterial infection if not treated right away.

People sometimes mistakenly use the terms corns and bunions interchangeably, but they are not the same. A “bunion” is the name for the enlarged bony bump located behind the big toe at the joint where it attaches to the foot. This often protrudes out the side, but occasionally it protrudes upward. Visit your local foot doctor, a leading NYC bunion surgery doctor who is surgically trained to remove this bump and will guide you to the newest bunion procedures that suit your lifestyle and expectations.
