When all conservative treatment options for your foot ailment have failed to adequately address your pain or concerns, foot surgery may be indicated to provide lasting relief of your symptoms. We generally perform surgery to provide pain relief, restoration of function, and reconstruction of deformities. It also often provides the added advantage of improved aesthetic appearance. Foot surgery is performed for medical purposes.

We perform Bunion corrective surgery in our office surgical suite under a local anesthetic. This procedure involves the removal of the bony prominence at the base of the large toe as well as the straightening of the great toe, which may involve the release of soft tissues, and on occasion, repositioning of the bones, which may require pins or screws for fixation. In most cases, the patient is able to walk out following the procedure, ambulating in a surgical shoe, which may be worn for a number of weeks.

Depending on the correction required, patients can return to normal shoe gear within a matter of weeks.

Corrective Bunion surgery can be achieved by many different methods depending on the particulars of the presenting deformity. If you are wondering if bunion surgery is an option for you, schedule an appointment to have a consultation with a Podiatrist to discuss this option in greater depth.


Hammertoe deformity presents as a contracture of a lesser toe such that the joint becomes very prominent on the top. Depending on your case, one or both feet can be affected.


Pain on the bottom of the feet while walking due to abnormal weight distribution.
Often the short toe rides high and rubs on the top of the shoe and at the tip of the affected toe.
Development of callus on the bottom of the foot.


Surgical remedy involves an osteotomy (breaking of bone) and releasing the tight tendons to allow the toe to sit straight once again.
Sometimes, a surgical pin may be placed in the toe to maintain the correction for several weeks following the surgery.


Permanent Partial Nail Correction or Matrixectomy is a routine surgical procedure performed that helps correct the pain and discomfort associated with ingrown toenails. Typically, ingrown nails primarily affect the great toe, but this surgery can correct any of your ingrown nail borders. We perform this surgery in our office under a local anesthetic, removing just the ingrown portion of the involved toenails permanently. The recovery period is quick, as there is a minimal postoperative disability with patients typically back in comfortable footwear often within just a few days. The result is usually aesthetically pleasing, barely noticeable post-surgery. On occasion, when significant deformity of the nail is present, this may require a Total Nail Avulsion (removal) permanently. Book an appointment today to see if this option is suitable for you.


A CO2 surgical laser is utilized in our office for the removal of Plantar Warts as well as being used in some instances as a method of permanent ingrown nail corrective surgery. The use of the laser allows for quicker healing, typically with less post-operative pain compared to typical excisional surgical procedures.
