FASHION-CONSCIOUS WOMEN RISK PERMANENT DISABILITY DUE TO COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY

DR. ROCK POSITANO, DIRECTOR OF THE NON-OPERATIVE FOOT AND ANKLE SERVICE AT THE HOSPITAL FOR SPECIAL SURGERY IN MANHATTAN STATES, "THAT COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY IS A SCARY TREND. I FIND MY WAITING ROOM INCREASINGLY FILLED WITH WOMEN HOBBLED BY FAILED COSMETIC FOOT PROCEDURES, THOSE DONE SOLELY TO IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE OF THE FOOT OR HELP PATIENTS FIT INTO FASHIONABLE SHOES."

MORE THAN HALF OF THE 175 MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN ORTHOPAEDIC FOOT AND ANKLE SOCIETY WHO RESPONDED TO A RECENT SURVEY BY THE GROUP SAID THEY HAD TREATED PATIENTS WITH PROBLEMS RESULTING FROM COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY.  THE SOCIETY HAS ISSUED A STATEMENT CONDEMNING THE PROCEDURE, SAID RICH CANTRALL, ITS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.

DESPITE THE RISKS AND PERILS OF THIS UNNECESSARY PROCEDURE, THERE ARE STILL PODIATRISTS WHO PERFORM THIS SURGERY ON UNSUSPECTING FEMALES FOR MONETARY GAIN.  ANY PERSON WHO HAS BEEN ASKED BY A PODIATRIST TO UNDERTAKE THIS UNNECESSARY SURGERY SHOULD OBTAIN AT LEAST ONE SECOND OPINION FROM A TRUSTED, REPUTABLE ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON.
