    Effective Corn Removal Near Chicago, IL

    A corn is an area (usually round or oval) of hard, thickened, discolored, damaged skin usually caused by repetitive excessive shoe pressure over a prominent toe joint.

    A corn removal surgery is a procedure that actually completely removes this damaged skin area, and then repairs the resulting “hole” that is left over with healthy adjacent skin.

    Since corns can be quite large compared to the amount of skin available next to it, the complete closure of the hole is the biggest challenge of the procedure. I have designed and fully tested a technique of using plastic surgical style local rotational skin flaps of healthy adjacent skin to cover the hole.

    There are many other advantageous with this technique in that its custom designed shape works well with skin lines (much better scar control) and allows for the better overall redistribution of the skin for a more natural appearing skin envelope afterwards.

    Note that this procedure is usually (not always) combined with a toe shortening or straightening procedure to address the underlying cause of how you got the corn so you will not have it come back.

    In my experience the reasons why people seek out procedures to have their corn removed are because:

    • The over the counter corn remedies did not help help or made the corn look worse
    • Their doctor said nothing else can be done to improve the corn
    • After getting rid of the shoes that were causing the corn, the corn got better but is still very visibly there—like a permanent dark circle.
    • They are too embarrassed to wear sandals, open toed shoes or go barefoot on the beach while having those corns on their toes.

    Many times it is just the one corn that needs to be removed (see photo).

    Other times there are two corns on the same toe that need removal. (see photo).

  • Toe Shortening and Corn Removal Case Study - July 2016

    Long Toes Corn Removal


    Are you embarassed or ashamed of the appearance of your toes? Do you have long toes with corns and discoloration that cause rubbing in shoes? Often patients come to Keyes for Toes seeking help with toe shortening treatment. Long toes can cause toes to curl up in shoe wear which leads to the formation of corns, hammertoes, discoloration and pain.

    Keyes for Toes has developed a special toe shortening procedure to remedy the issue. By shortening the toe the overall toe alignment is improved, and rubbing in the shoe is eliminated. This offers a permanent removal of the corn, as opposed to shaving down the area which is prone to recurrence. The procedures are performed on an ambulatory basis under local anesthesia, which carries many benefits for the patient. You will not have to be put to sleep or "put under," you are able to continue walking and driving throughout the course of treatment, and you can go back to work the same day. The procedures are also done without the need for external implants or screws in the toes, which allows for more aesthetically pleasing results and the ability to retain flexibility in the joints.


    Keyes for Toes review


    "The hardest part of my treatment was deciding to take the initial step to contact Dr. Keyes' office. Once that was done, the rest was a piece of cake. From the initial consultation to the end of my journey, I was always kept informed on what the process would entail and was always prepared mentally for what the process would be like. Dr. Keyes has a great personality and a staff that could not have been better had I picked them myself. I am highly satisfied with the results and would encourage anyone who is struggling with this decision to not delay it any more. I am ready to meet the world unashamed with confidence and this has been a very uplifting and encouraging journey. Thank you all for making this possible!! I won't forget any of you guys. God bless!!" ~Anonymous


    The patient Before and After photo pictured above belongs to a patient of Keyes for Toes who underwent treatment for seven toe corrections. She had hammertoes, corns, discoloration and long toes, as well as complications from a previous hammertoe surgery performed by another doctor nearly twenty years earlier. By removing the lesions, adjusting the length of the toe and providing detailed skin coloration and scar care treatment, Dr. Keyes was able to correct the issue with results that are both functionally and aesthetically pleasing.

    Many patients visit our office feeling hopeless and frustrated with the condition of their toes. We have had many patients tell us they were told nothing could be done with their case, or the only treatment options available would require extensive down time, ugly boots and pins and screws being placed in their toes. At Keyes for Toes we are taking a new approach to toe corrective surgery; one that offers greater patient convenience and results that are both practical and beautiful.
