Neurovascular Corns

These are very painful corns that are infiltrated by blood vessels and nerves. Our Centre offers various advanced techniques to resolve neurovascular corns. Sometimes they are treated by means of invasive cryosurgery. (maybe have a picture here) Cryosurgery effectively breaks down the nerves surrounding the corn. Sometimes the corn is fully excised and the skin closed using advanced plastic surgery techniques.

Corns that form on the bottom of the foot can be painful whether neurovascular or not. In some cases there may be a viral cause as certain types of human papilloma wart can look very similar to corns. As well as various forms of surgery the Centre will also consider cryotherapy, cryosurgery and radiofrequency to treat these lesions.
