AS IF THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH FOOT CONDITIONS TO TREAT SUCH AS DIABETES, PLANTAR FASCIITIS, FUNGAL INFECTIONS, INGROWN NAILS, ETC. THAT WE HAVE TO DREAM UP WAYS TO PERFORM UNNECESSARY COSMETIC SURGERY ON WOMEN.  NOTICE THAT NO MAN IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD EVER DREAM OF HAVING PORTIONS OF HIS TOES SHAVED OFF IN UNNECESSARY SURGERY TO BETTER FIT IN COWBOY BOOTS OR POINTY SHOES.  THERE IS ONE PODIATRIST IN TORONTO WHO 'CLAIMS' THAT 35% OF HIS PRACTICE IS MADE UP OF FEMALES WANTING UNNECESSARY COSMETIC SURGERY.  THIS PARTICULAR PODIATRIST HAD AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE NATIONAL POST WHERE THE EDITOR PREFACED THE STORY BY STATING "ARE WE LOSING OUR MINDS FOLKS."  

OUR FOOT CLINIC BELIEVES IN CONSERVATIVE TREATMENT.  THE 'POWER THAT CREATED THE BODY, HEALS THE BODY'. SOMETIMES WE NEED A HELPING HAND AND THAT IS WHERE WE COME IN.  TO EDUCATE THE PATIENT AND ASSIST THE BODY'S INCREDIBLE HEALING ABILITY.  WE ONLY RECOMMEND PHARMACEUTICALS AS A LAST RESORT AND HARDLY EVER RECOMMEND SURGERY UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY OTHER THAN UNCOMPLICATED INGROWN TOENAIL SURGERY.

PODIATRIST, DR. MICHAEL BYRNES STATES THAT "FASHION-CONSCIOUS AMERICAN WOMEN ARE GETTING THEIR PINKY TOES LOPPED OFF SO THEY CAN FIT INTO EXPENSIVE HIGH HEELS. WHY DON'T WE JUST CALL IT 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 ALLOW IT.  THIS STARTED AS AN EAST COAST THING, THEN IT BECAME A WEST COAST THING, BUT NOT HERE.  NOT IN CHICAGO."  PODIATRIST, BYRNES GOES ON TO STATE THAT "SOMETIMES THIS SURGERY IS NECESSARY TO REPAIR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE, BUT NEVER FOR COSMETIC REASONS."
