Corns and Callus

These are areas of hard skin that are formed as a result of excess pressure, shear or friction on areas of the foot. A corn has a central core where the pressure has been concentrated.

Reasons for removal

  • To alleviate pain
  • To prevent muscle/ligament strains from trying to offload the areas
  • To prevent ulceration of the areas if the corns or callus are left to get too large/deep (particularly important in Diabetic or other high risk patients)
  • To prevent fissures/cracking and blistering beneath
  • Prevention of falls in elderly or disabled patients and increase mobility
  • Cosmetic purposes

Corn/ callus treatment

Hard skin is removed to treat painful feet and prevent ulceration.

Devices can be made to help prevent them from reoccurring

Additional Management (extra charge)

  • Orthotics
  • Moulded silicones for callus or corns on or between toes
  • Polymer gels to absorb shear
