Transcript
Corn Removal Surgery Dr. Travis Stork: We’ve podiatrist Dr. Philip Radovic in our procedure room with Jill who is grossed out by a corn on her toe. So Jill what prompted you to go see Dr. Radovic? Jill: Well, I had a lot of pain on the corn between your toes and when you wear shoes, it just kind of compresses it and it’s very painful and I’ve been walking around like this for years, putting it off and finally, I just can’t it anymore. So that’s why I came to see him. Dr. Travis Stork: So Dr. Radovic let’s talk about corns and what you’re going to do. Dr. Philip Radovic: Well, corns are calluses that get impacted from pressure and in her case between two toes, they’re pressing each other at the prominence of the joint so it impacted, its becomes very painful. And in her case, her pains in her fourth toe were one of the soft corns is, but it’s due to the fifth toe which is deformed and rotated like a hammer toe. So to permanently correct that, I’m going to address her hammer toe or fifth toe, and remove the joint to straighten it out and remove the flesh around her fourth toe and so she didn’t have any pain. Dr. Travis Stork: So you’re removing not only the corn but the cause of her corns. So hopefully they won’t come back and you guys go ahead and get started back there. Dr. Phillip Radovic: Well, you can see here, I’ve excised the skin and that’s part of the corn on the fifth toe that I’ve removed. And I’ve done it in a lenticular fashion so that when this is closed it’s going to rotate that toe into a better position. Dr. Andrew P. Ordon: Phil, do you ever tourniquet on that leg? Dr. Phillip Radovic: No, I just gave a little epinephrine in this toe. It’s been done the same way for many years. You get a nice big bone cutter like this, we get up that under that joint - Dr. Andrew P. Ordon: This is why I went into pediatrics, so non-surgery. Dr. Phillip Radovic: You’re going to grab that head and that’s it. Very brutal but -- Dr. Andrew P. Ordon: A little arts and crafts. Dr. Phillip Radovic: Yes. And so you can see there’s the head of her proximal phalanx, the cartilage on it, that’s where we resected the bone. And so now, her toe when we close it up, I’m going to sew those ligaments and tendons right back together where they were, where I found them and that’s going to rotate her toe straighten it out and shall no longer have that pressure on the fourth toe or in her shoe on the fifth toe over her. So we’re just going to irrigate this out now.
