Anti-Keloid Program

KeloidUNSIGHTLY PAINFUL KELOIDS CAN BE AVOIDED.

If you are one of the millions who suffer with being a keloid former and want to have your hammertoes corrected and corns removed, Keyes for Toes in Oak Park, Illinois can help you. Keloids are a type of scarring that occurs when tissue overgrows at the site of a healed skin wound. The result is a firm, raised rubbery lesion or nodule that may be flesh-colored or dark brown in color. Keloid scars are not contagious or cancerous. They are often severely itchy. They may cause sharp pain and even make skin movement difficult. Your keloid and overscarring risk exam helps Dr. Keyes customize his Keloid Prevention Technology (KPT) for you. Keloid prevention technology integrates ten known anti-keloid measures into every toe procedure and recovery. They include:

  • Preoperative Standardized Keloid Risk Exam performed on all patients.
  • Procedures are designed from the ground up to be keloid-resistant.
  • We use anti-keloid surgical sutures.
  • The toe procedures are done over a few days (one toe per day) instead of all on the same day.
  • Our innovative external structural toe splinting system controls swelling and eliminates the need for pins or screws.
  • At around three weeks post-op, we start anti-keloid toe splint application (different than the toe splints described above).
  • Early keloid formation detection allows us to concentrate our anti-keloid efforts on the toes that need it most.
  • Most problem areas can be treated by the patient at home with our patient training methods using our own specialized anti-keloid home application supplies.
  • We have a longer-term keloid formation monitoring program that we use to detect any late-forming keloids.
  • We are research-oriented with our focus on keloid prevention.

To help eliminate the possibility of developing keloids from a hammertoe procedure and to obtain the best possible results, Dr. Keyes uses his highly developed skill and plastic surgery-style, virtually unnoticeable incisions. His technique helps to obtain a more pleasing look and preserve the natural shape of the toe.

At Keyes for Toes, you'll discover all you need in one place and that one place happens to be the most appropriate, patient-friendly and cost-effective setting to get the look you've always wanted. So if you're looking to correct your hammertoes, corns, or long toe problems in the most comfortable, convenient way possible, look to Dr. Keyes and his staff at Keyes for Toes.
