  • What is Corn Removal?

    Corn removal or foot corn removal is a process of eliminating corn, which is small and thick areas of skin that develop on the feet due to repeated pressure or friction. Corns typically form on the tops or sides of toes, the ball of the foot, or the heel and can cause discomfort or pain when walking or wearing shoes.

    There are various methods to remove foot corn. Initially, the doctor recommends over-the-counter treatments, such as corn pads, medicated corn removal solutions, etc. However, in serious cases, manual removal or surgery may be necessary to remove the corns that have grown deep into the skin.

    Is It Possible To Remove Corn on Feet Overnight?

    It is not possible to remove corn on feet overnight. Corns are thickened layers of skin that develop over time due to repeated pressure or friction, and they require a combination of time and proper treatment to be effectively removed. While there are over-the-counter treatments available that can help soften and reduce the size of corn, it is unlikely that they will completely disappear overnight.

    To effectively remove corns, it is important to first identify and address the underlying cause of the pressure or friction that is causing them. This may involve changing footwear, using padding or orthotics to cushion the affected area, or addressing any foot abnormalities that may be contributing to the problem.

    Additionally, manual removal of corns by a specialist may be necessary in some cases. This involves carefully removing the thickened layers of skin using specialized tools and techniques. Overall, while it may not be possible to remove corns on feet overnight, seeking prompt and appropriate treatment can help effectively reduce their size and alleviate any associated discomfort or pain.

    What Tests Are Performed Before Corn Treatment?

    In most cases, tests are not necessary before corn treatment. Corns are a common condition that can usually be diagnosed based on their appearance and location on foot. However, if the corn is unusually large or there is any suspicion of an underlying condition such as a bone deformity or a nerve problem, the doctor may order imaging tests such as X-rays or an MRI to evaluate the foot and rule out other possible causes of your symptoms.

    Additionally, the doctor will perform a physical exam to evaluate your foot and determine the best course of treatment. He/she will gather the patient’s medical history, including any previous foot injuries or surgeries, and inquire about the footwear and any activities that may contribute to the corn’s development. Based on this information, the doctor may recommend a combination of self-care measures, over-the-counter treatments, or surgery.

    How Is Corn Removal Laser Surgery Performed?

    Corn removal surgery (sometimes called Heloma Surgery) is typically performed as an outpatient procedure by a podiatrist or foot surgeon. The procedure involves removing the thickened layers of skin that make up the corn and any underlying tissue or bone contributing to the problem. The following steps are typically involved in the surgery-

    • Firstly, the foot is numbed using a local anesthetic to minimize pain and discomfort during the procedure. In some cases, general anesthesia may be used to numb the foot.
    • A small incision is made in the skin overlying the corn, allowing the surgeon to access the underlying tissue and bone.
    • The surgeon carefully removes the thickened layers of skin that make up the corn, as well as any underlying tissue or bone that may be contributing to the problem.
    • The incision is closed using sutures or adhesive strips, and a dressing or bandage is applied to the foot.

    After the procedure, the patient is typically instructed to keep the foot elevated. Detailed post-op instructions, medications, and follow-up schedules are also given to the patient before discharge. Overall, corn removal surgery is a relatively simple and safe procedure that can effectively alleviate the discomfort and pain associated with corn.
