Removal of the osteophytes or surgical fusion stiffening of the damaged joints is the usual surgical treatment. Common Foot problems and their surgical correction While many foot problems can be treated non-surgically, not all problems will improve and some will require an operation.  Many times, it is a last resort and final option for treatment of a foot problem, condition or injury. Surgery to correct the hammer, mallet or claw toe deformity will usually permanently cure the formation of painful corns on skin overlying these joints. Early symptoms can include “aches” within the joints often occurring after activity. If you are considering whether or not to have a foot operation, your podiatric surgeon will usually provide you with advice leaflets tailored to your specific operation.  Corns under the foot often result from a prominent metatarsal bone. In later stages there may be persistent swelling around the joint or hard lumps around the edge of the joints. A large sac of fluid, known as a bursa, can form over the enlarged joint which can then become inflamed and painful. Foot surgery usually requires commitment by the patient.
