SOUTH CAROLINA PODIATRIST, DR. JORDANNA BAKER STATED, "A STARTLING 73 PERCENT OF WOMEN ADMITTED TO HAVING A SHOE-RELATED FOOT ISSUE LIKE BUNIONS, CORNS, CALLOUSES OR HAMMERTOES.  WHEN THESE BECOME A CONDITION THAT AFFECTS YOU ON A DAILY BASIS, IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT SOME SURGERY.  WHAT MANY MAY NOT REALIZE IS THAT AS WE GET OLDER, THE FAT PAD IN THE BOTTOM OF OUR FOOT ACTUALLY DIMINISHES.  WITH LESS CUSHION BETWEEN BONE AND SHOE, IT MAKES WEARING SHOES, ESPECIALLY HEELS, VERY DIFFICULT TO BEAR."

PODIATRIST BAKER STATES, "THE AVOID THE PAIN, SOME ARE RESORTING TO A COSMETIC PROCEDURE WHERE COLLAGEN IS INJECTED IN THE HEEL, THE BALL, OF THE FOOT, OR BOTH.  THE DOWNTIME IS SHORT, MEANING YOU'RE WALKING OUT OF THE OFFICE MERE MINUTES AFTER THE PROCEDURE.  THE ONLY CATCH, IS GOING TO COST YOU.  THE SURGERY IS 'COSMETIC', SO ALL COSMETIC COULD COST ANYWHERE FROM $600 TO $1,200 A FOOT FOR THOSE INJECTIONS THAT LAST SIX MONTHS TO A YEAR."

IN ONTARIO, PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS CANNOT INJECT COLLAGEN INTO THE FOOT.  YOU WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A MEDICAL DOCTOR TO HAVE THIS PROCEDURE PERFORMED.
