Award-Winning Podiatrists In Merrillville, IN, For Corrective & Cosmetic Surgery For Bunions, Hammertoes, Toe Reshaping & Toe Shortening

Corrective Foot Surgery

foot surgeons for bunions and hammertoesCorrective foot surgery can be performed strictly for cosmetic reasons, but the benefit is twofold. In addition to an increase in the overall attractiveness of the foot, function is generally improved and/or restored. Conservative care should be considered, but it is often impractical and temporary, whereas corrective surgery is the best long-term solution. An innovative and refined approach to surgery using new modifications and the latest in technology is what typically leads to quicker and more ambulatory recovery periods, generally improved cosmetic appearance with minimal scarring, and minimal pain. All procedures are done on an outpatient basis with the patient going home and usually being able to walk the same day.

Bunions & Hammertoes

Bunions
One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries is the procedure to repair bunions. While there are many different types of bunion surgeries, the most common, bunionectomy, can remove the bunion entirely. Your foot will again be aesthetically pleasing, and you will get relief from your painful bunion.

Hammertoe
Hammertoe occurs when the joint of a toe begins to bend into a claw-like position and will not straighten. This condition usually gets worse with time and may result in total loss of feeling in one or multiple toes. Restoring your toes when you have hammertoes is beneficial both immediately and long term. Immediately, you will have relief from the pain of hammertoes and aesthetic benefits. In the future, you won’t have other foot conditions arise as a result of untreated hammertoes, such as bunions, corns, and calluses.

Other Types Of Corrective & Cosmetic Surgery

In addition to the surgeries listed above, there are many other common procedures that improve the look and function of the foot. For example, corns and calluses can be corrected with a simple procedure. Severe foot injuries such as fractures often require surgery so that they can heal and regain their former appearance, and so the patient can return to his or her previous lifestyle and appearance.

For many of our patients, cosmetic foot surgery is done simply to correct an aesthetic problem. Popular procedures of this type include reshaping toes and narrowing of the feet.

Toe shortening is an increasingly popular option for those who hate feeling a pinch at the end of their shoes. It’s also a subtle, yet highly effective way to improve the shape of the feet by bringing the toes into a more harmonious balance with the rest of the foot.
