Surgical Treatment of Corns

Monday, 17 August 2020 00:00

A corn is a thick layer of skin that forms due to excess pressure and friction. They work as the body’s mechanism for protection of the skin. Corns can form due to an enlarged joint, tight shoes or a toe deformity. While more conservative treatment options can be used on a corn, surgery may be necessary to remove the corn. Surgery usually involves a small incision (of about 2 cm), removal of the head of the corn, and then repairing the skin. After the surgery, your podiatrist will be able to provide recommendations for caring for the surgical wound. If you have a corn that is painful, consult with your podiatrist on what treatment options are best for you.  

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of New Tampa Foot & Ankle. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
