Corn Removal Surgery

Corn Removal Surgery


Corn Removal Surgery NYCA corn is an unsightly localized lesion of hard thickened skin that is typically found over a pressure point. A corn is caused by the rubbing of a bone against your soft tissue causing skin to thicken and harden forming what is referred to as a corn. Conservative treatment of corns consists of shaving thickened skin, shoe modification and treatment with custom orthotics. Surgical options for corn treatment typically involve modifying the bone causing the pressure point under the corn. All symptoms and potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. There are two different types of corns: soft and hard. Depending on the type of corn, its location as well what is causing it to form, your foot doctor in NYC will suggest a procedure to correct it.

Plantar Fasciitis Surgery

Plantar Fasciitis Surgery


Plantar Fasciitis Surgery NYC

Plantar fasciitis can develop in anyone but certain foot types have an increased tendency to develop this pain. Those with abnormally high or low arches are more at risk to develop plantar fasciitis as well as those who spend a lot of time on their feet.

Wearing flat unsupportive shoes can increase your risk greatly and those that are obese are especially prone to plantar fasciitis. People who are at a higher risk of developing this condition are mail carriers, teachers, nurses, runners and others who stay on their feet for extended durations of time.

Achilles Tendon Surgery

Achilles Tendon Surgery


The Achilles tendon is prone to injury and pain due to the enormous demand the body places on it during physical activity and certain anatomical factors that leave it less able to repair itself after injury. Most cases of Achilles pain can be treated through physical therapy and orthotics, but when the tendon becomes torn, ruptured, or has developed significant scar tissue, then Achilles Tendon Surgery becomes an option to discuss with your doctor.

What Is the Achilles Tendon?

Achilles Tendon Surgery NYC

Tendons are rope-like structures that connect your muscles to your bones. When your muscle contracts, it pulls on the tendon, which in turn moves the joint. Your Achilles tendon is the strongest and largest tendon in your body, allowing your body to perform incredible things like sprinting and jumping. The force needed to push your foot down when you walk or run is generated by your Achilles tendon.

Bunion

Bunion


Your podiatric foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Rimawi offers a variety of the newest treatment options (minimal incision, no scar) for patients dealing with bunions in New York City. At Manhattan Foot Specialists, we perform the latest minimally invasive bunion surgery techniques, also known as no scar bunion surgery, only when conservative (non-surgical solutions) don't relieve your pain.

Cheilectomy (BIG TOE ARTHRITIS Surgery)

Cheilectomy (BIG TOE ARTHRITIS Surgery)


A Cheilectomy is a procedure to surgically remove painful bone spurs. Bone spurs can be the result of arthritis or the pulling of a tendon or ligament, causing the reactive bone to form. Bone spurs can sometimes cause painful lesions on your skin which can be especially irritating when wearing certain types of shoes. Less commonly, a bone spur can result after a fracture from the bone healing in a displaced position.

The big-toe joint is the most common location a cheilectomy is done, and it is generally performed to increase motion at that joint or to remove a painful bony prominence and/or bunion. All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.

Cosmetic Foot Surgery

Cosmetic Foot Surgery


Bunions, hammertoes, and corns are the three most common foot deformities being treated by cosmetic foot surgery. Our podiatrists treat these deformities using Minimally-Invasive surgical techniques so the patient is left with minimal to no scarring.

Many people are ashamed of their feet and having nice straight toes without corns can help your confidence and quality of life. All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.

Flat Foot Surgery

Flat Foot Surgery


Flat feet can cause pain, arthritis, and tendon degeneration and are something that should be treated from an early age. If your flat foot pain is affecting your quality of life on a daily basis, your New York foot doctor may recommend flat foot surgery. The goal of flat foot surgery is to create an arch in the foot and realign your center of gravity to a functionally optimal position.

This type of surgery has a long recovery period thus, conservative care should always be attempted first. Flat foot surgery is considered reconstructive surgery and is quite customized to each foot depending on the individual patient’s bone structure and tendon health. All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

HAMMER TOE SPECIALISTS

HAMMER TOE SPECIALISTS


What Is Hammer Toe Surgery?

A hammer toe is a foot deformity where the toe becomes bent at the joint. It often causes pain and is associated with corns forming over the toe. Not only are hammer toes painful, but they also cause a lot of people embarrassment. Conservative treatments include stretching, orthotics, padding, and strapping of the toes. If you have tried these conservative treatments without relief of symptoms, surgically straightening the toes may be a good option for you. Our doctors at Manhattan Foot Specialists perform Minimally-invasive (hidden-incision) hammer toe surgery. All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.

Heel Spur Surgery

Heel Spur Surgery


Your heel is the primary exit point for the vertical forces travelling through your body. Each time you walk, run and jump, the heel is absorbing the shock of the body weight above and the ground forces below. Thus it is no surprise, so many people suffer from chronic heel pain. The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis with or without the presence of a heel spur. Plantar fasciitis is caused by the pulling of a thick band of tissue that connects your heel to your forefoot. As you absorb shocks, the arch of your foot tends to flatten with each step, causing this band of tissue to stretch.

As it is stretched, this band of tissue known as the plantar fascia tugs on the heel bone (calcaneus), causing a heel spur to form. Conservative treatment is successful in relieving symptoms in most patients, but some go on to needing surgery. Surgical treatment for heel spurs and plantar fasciitis yields great results, and total relief of pain shortly after surgery is attained in most cases. All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Ingrown Toenail Surgery

Ingrown Toenail Surgery


Ingrown toenails are very common in pediatric and adult patients. An ingrown nail occurs when the corner of a nail grows into the skin, causing pain, redness, and often even infection in the surrounding skin. Ingrown toenails should be treated in the office of your foot doctor in NYC to avoid further complications. If this is a chronic recurring issue, your foot doctor in NYC has a number of treatment options to prevent your ingrown nail from returning permanently.

All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Neuroma Surgery

Neuroma Surgery


If you have burning pain or numbness in the ball area of your foot, you may be suffering from Morton’s neuroma or a different type of neuroma. A Neuroma is a condition where the nerves in your forefoot form a large ball of scared nerve tissue causing pain and discomfort. In severe cases, neuroma surgery may be recommended to remove the affected nerve and surrounding scar tissue.

Neuroma Symptoms

When you are suffering from a neuroma, you will feel pain or numbness on the bottom of your foot and sometimes in your toes. A Morton’s Neuroma is a neuroma located between your 3rd and 4th metatarsals, and this is the most common spot for this pathology to occur. Typical complaints include the feeling of walking on a pebble or stone or the feeling that your sock is rolled up under your toes. You also may experience severe pain when you wear tight or narrow shoes or when you walk barefoot.

Visit an NYC foot doctor if you are experiencing pain in the ball of your foot. After a thorough examination and definitive diagnosis, your Midtown NYC podiatrist can tell you if surgery is an option. All symptoms, potential procedural and plantar fasciitis treatment options should always be discussed with a physician after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Orthotics

Orthotics


We fit patients for custom foot orthotics. Custom foot orthotics are superior to what we all see in the drugstore or online because they are made specifically for your individual foot. Yes, there are common foot pathologies that certain orthotic types may be beneficial. But having an orthotic produced based on a 3-D image or a mold of your foot is far superior to any store-bought insert.

Orthotics act to balance your feet and legs while controlling your foot while walking and standing. We modify the orthotics to correct deformities and control the foot and prevent motions that cause pain.

Most people try the over-the-counter versions of orthotics first but often end up needing a more customized approach to get lasting relief. A good podiatry doctor does a full biomechanic evaluation to determine the type of orthotics that will work best for your individual symptoms. Biomechanics is a science that studies how your body moves during walking, running, and sports activities and is an integral component of a good sports medicine podiatric exam.

Ingrown toenails

Ingrown toenails


Ingrown toenails are the result of the corners or edges of your toenails growing into the skin of your toe. Ingrown toenails most commonly occur on your big toe. This problem affects people of all ages and should be examined by a foot doctor in New York to prevent any complications.

Ingrown nails can be very painful and may become infected when they are sticking deep into the skin.  If you try to dig the nail out, you may cut your skin and potentially get an infection that could affect the bone. All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.
