This procedure is performed in situations where there is a soft corn in between the toes. The soft corn may be present in between any of the toes. The condition is caused by bone to bone pressure from a bone spur on one toe, pressing into bone on the adjacent toe.
Sometimes, depending on the size of the bone spurs, the spur will have to be removed from each toe.
This is a very simple procedure and in the vast majority of cases, a very successful procedure.
Depending on the situation, this procedure can be done under local anesthesia.
Many individuals will have pain in the area at the end of the great toe nail. This will be particularly true in those that wear shoes with a low toe box and pressure of the shoe pressing against the toe will cause pain.
An x-ray will reveal an exostosis or bone spur at the end of the toe which is growing upwards causing pressure between the bone and the shoe. The toe gets caught in between and begins to hurt.
This is a reasonably simple procedure and can be done under local anesthesia.
Other problems such as a growth on the nail bed or an excessively thick nail must be ruled out as a source of pain.
