and Corn Removal Surgery

All patients are looking for the top or best foot surgeons to evaluate their foot problem or perform their foot surgery.  We believe that giving different treatment options (even non surgical treatment) is a top priority.

At our practice our patients always have three choices:

  1. No Treatment (Consultation, Second Opinion, Additional Testing)
  2. Conservative Treatment (Medication, Injection Therapy, Custom Orthotics)
  3. Surgical Treatment (In Office, Out Patient – Local / Sedation / General Anesthesia)

Each patient is different and conservative treatment vs. surgical correction both differ for the particular type of toe problem, age and lifestyle.  The right treatment must also meet the patient’s expectations in regard to resolution of their problem(s) and future functionality.  And if conservative treatment fails, the option to not have surgery is as important as the surgery chosen by your surgeon.  Of course surgical training is very important, and continuing medical education on the latest medical advancements is important as well, but it’s the careful planning before and after surgical treatment that produces the best outcome.

The hammertoe, “crooked or bent toe” patient complaint is very common problem.  It’s origin ranges from tendon and ligament imbalances to shoe pressure on a long toe.

“Corn on Toe” is another common patient question and complaint.  It’s a type of callus with a hard core in the center that can occur on the top, between or on the tip of the toes. Corns are caused by excessive pressure or friction from prominent bone structures.

Not only can the thick and discolored portion of the corn be removed, but the surgery removes the offending portion of the bone (or bone spur) to prevent the corn from returning.


From Our Google Reviews

My visit to the Moore office in Spring was very pleasurable! The staff is more than accommodating and helpful; Dr. Moore is an extremely genial and knowledgeable physician! In my opinion, I have unsightly feet, LOL, nonetheless, Dr. Moore was able to explain symptomology and causation of my cosmetic concerns that I was completely unaware of and glad to learn! He is person-centered, and prioritizes your feet are first healthy, yet still reassuring that he can give you realistic but very favorable results you want! I’m very excited for my upcoming surgery and trust that my health and wants are of the upmost concern for Dr. Moore and his staff.



The offending spur or toe joint is remodeled and affected toe is straightened if necessary. Depending on the location or severity, the skin lesion or corn itself is removed during the procedure or it will naturally fall off 3 to 4 weeks after the surgery. The incision is minimal (1.5cm to 3/4 inch) on the top or side of the toe. Sutures are removed at 2 weeks.

The procedure is performed in the office with local anesthetic or at an outpatient facility under sedation and full weight bearing is allowed after 48 to 72 hours of partial weight bearing.

TREATMENT OF CORNS – Conservative Care


A larger, softer shoe can relieve the direct or indirect pressure. Make sure that the shoe has enough room at the end about the width of your thumb and that the toe box (front of the shoe) is high enough to allow your toes to move freely.


If a there is a corn or callus formation, reduction by either professional sharp debridement (shaving) or consistent filing will give temporary relief. Use caution with over the counter corn removal medication or pads. The medication is a type of acid that can cause an ulceration or infection if not used properly or in excess.
