  • NY PODIATRIST STATES THAT TOE SHORTENING SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED WHEN MEDICALLY NECESSARY. TORONTO CHIROPODIST, MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE AGREES 100%

NEW YORK PODIATRIST, DR. HILLARY BRENNER STATES "THAT AFTER SHE COMPLETED A TOE SHORTENING PROCEDURE FOR A PATIENT WHOO WAS CONSTANTLY IN PAIN, SHE NOTICED AN INFLUX OF WOMEN ASKING HER TO PROVIDE TOE SHORTENING SERVICES FOR THEMSELVES -- FOR COMPLETELY COSMETIC PURPOSES.  SHE HAS TURNED THEM ALL DOWN.  I ONLY DO SURGERIES FOR PEOPLE HAVING PAIN.  IF YOU ARE NOT IN PAIN YOU DO NOT HAVE SURGERY."

THERE ARE SOME ACCEPTABLE REASONS THAT WOMEN WOULD OPT TO GET COSMETIC SURGERY ON YOUR FEET, INCLUDING PAINFUL BUNIONS OR DEFORMITIES.  DO YOU NOTICE THAT IS MAINLY WOMEN WHO WANT COSMETIC SURGERY ON THEIR FEET.  THERE IS ACTUALLY ONE PODIATRIST IN TORONTO WHO STATES THAT 35% OF HIS PRACTICE IS COSMETIC SURGERY FOR THE FOOT.  THIS PARTICULAR PODIATRIST HAD AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE NATIONAL POST A WHILE BACK WHERE HE TALKS ABOUT RESHAPING THE TOES OF A WOMEN'S FOOT SO THEY WOULD BETTER FIT INTO HIGH HEELS.  THE ARTICLE WAS PREFACED BY THE EDITOR'S COMMENT "ARE WE LOSING OUR MINDS FOLKS."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS REMEMBERS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAD TO SWEAR TO WHEN WE GRADUATED WAS THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH WHERE IT STATES, DOCTOR DO NO HARM.  WHY IN THE EARTH WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO HAVE  THE TISSUE SHAVED OFF THE SIDES OF YOUR TOES TO BETTER FIT IN POINTY HIGH HEELS.  HIGH HEELS ARE THE WORST THING FOR YOUR FEET AND POSTURE AND WE WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE, LET ALONE HAVE UNNECESSARY SURGERY WHICH COULD RESULT IN UNWANTED COMPLICATIONS.  THINK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE EVER CONSIDERING ONE OF THESE UNNECESSARY SURGERIES.
