  • AMERICAN FOOT AND ANKLE SOCIETY RECOMMENDS AGAINST COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY

DR. SHARON DREEBEN, CHAIRPERSON OF THE AMERICAN FOOT AND ANKLE SOCIETY HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE TO DISCUSS THE DANGEROUS TREND IN COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY.  WHAT IS DISTURBING IS THAT 18% OF PODIATRISTS WERE WILLING TO PERFORM THIS UNNECESSARY SURGERY OF NORMAL FEET THAT WERE PAIN-FREE.  SHE STATES, "SOMETIMES A HUGE PRICE IS PAID. SOME WOMEN HAVE SUFFERED PERMANENT SWELLING OF THE TOES.  OTHERS WITH DEFORMITIES AND INFECTIONS.  AND IF NERVE INJURY OCCURS PATIENTS COMPLAIN OF CHRONIC PAIN.  ONE OF THE GREATEST IRONIES OF ALL IS THAT THERE ARE SOME PATIENTS WHO'VE HAD COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY WHO CANNOT WEAR ANY KIND OF SHOE COMFORTABLY."

NOTICE THAT ALL OF THE PATIENTS ARE WOMEN.  OUR FOOT CLINIC BELIEVES THAT THESE SURGERIES BORDER ON THE UNETHICAL AND WOULD NEVER CONSIDER IT OR RECOMMEND IT FOR ANYONE.  THE DOCTORS JOB IS TO GIVE PATIENTS WHAT THE NEED, NOT WHAT THEY WANT, NOT TO CHARGING WOMEN PATIENTS LARGE FEES FOR UNNECESSARY SURGERY.
