A wide range of soft tissue surgery procedures are available to our podiatrists and are performed in accordance with a very rigorous protocol which includes using sterile surgical instruments and field.
Soft tissue surgery consists of removing a mass or a lump that can be painful or cancerous. It is important to make an early and accurate diagnosis and proceed with the removal of the mass, if needed, as it will improve the patient’s quality of life and prevent future complications. Below are some examples of the most common soft tissue surgery performed by our podiatrists:
A hammer toe is a deformity of one or both joints of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th toe. This deformity can put pressure on the toe when wearing shoes and cause pain.
Morton’s neuroma is often referred to as a pinched or swollen nerve. Wearing tight shoes or shoes with pointed toes is the most common cause of Morton’s neuroma!
