PODIATRIST STATES THAT COSMETIC SURGERY FOR FASHION IS JUST CRAZY

ILLINOIS PODIATRIST STATES, "FASHION-CONSCIOUS AMERICAN WOMEN ARE GETTING THEIR PINKY TOES LOPPED OFF SO THEY CAN FIT INTO EXPENSIVE HIGH HEELS.  WHY DON'T WE CALL IT WHAT IT IS: MUTILATION FOR FASHION.  THANK GOD IT'S NOT BEING DONE IN ILLINOIS.  WE HAVE VERY RESPONSIBLE PODIATRISTS IN ILLINOIS.  I WON'T DO IT, AND NO PODIATRIST I KNOW WOULD DO IT.  THIS STARTED AS AN EAST COAST THING THING, THEN IT BECAME A WEST COAST THING, BUT NOT HERE.  NOT IN CHICAGO."

PODIATRIST BYRNES STATES, "SOMETIMES THE PINKY TOE IS CUT DOWN.  AND OTHER TIMES THE BONES IN THE LONGEST TOES ARE REMOVED, ALTHOUGH IF YOU REMOVE TOO MUCH, AND TRY TO PUT A SOCK ON, YOUR TOE COULD FOLD OVER AND YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT.  SOME PEOPLE NEED SUCH SURGERY, TO REPAIR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE, TO RELIEVE PAIN, BUT WE DON'T DO IT FOR FASHION TO FIT INTO FASHION SHOES.  YET AREN'T CHICAGO WOMEN AS STYLISH AS THE FLYOVER PEOPLE FROM NEW YORK AND LA.  SURE THEY'RE FASHIONABLE, THEY ARE JUST NOT CRAZY."

THERE IS A LEAST ONE TORONTO PODIATRIST WHO GRADUATED FROM PODIATRY SCHOOL IN ILLINOIS WHO PERFORMS THIS TYPE OF QUESTIONABLE SURGERY.  ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS BELIEVES IN  CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID MEDICATIONS AND SURGERY WHENEVER POSSIBLE AND WOULD NEVER EVER IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CONSIDER COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY.
