Painful Corn

Posted by Vicki B on 10/15/02 at 20:58 (097579)

I have a corn that really hurts and I currently have no medical insurance. Is the surgical procedure for corn removal costly?

If this is chronic and re-occurring then yes surgery is needed. Now if you just need professional advice and trimming then this can be between 50-100 dollars. This money can save you alot of pain and potential problems with self treatment

I have a corn on each foot but the pain is minor. I have tried different medicated disks and none have worked. Can you refer me to any foot doctors in southern California who can surgically remove the corns?
