Corns and bursa

The Centre sees patients on a daily basis for the permanent curative treatment of corns and bursae.

Corns are areas of hard skin caused by prominent bony lumps and bumps, often in association with claw and hammer toe deformities. In most cases corns can be permanently removed with excellent cosmetic and symptomatic results. Surgery often involves the removal of small sections of bone under local anaesthetic.

Many patients confuse corns for bursa. The two look vaguely similar but a bursa forms under the skin as a small protective sac which can become inflamed and painful. A corn consists of a focal area of painful hard skin . In either case the problem is treated in a similar way at the Centre.
