Re: spur on top of foot

Bump!

Does everyone one here only have bunions? No other foot problems?

Re: spur on top of foot

Not too sure if this is what you mean, but I had surgery for Hallux Limitus and that is kinda like a bunion but the spurs or growths are on the top of the joint instead of the side.

If it is, they were cut off like they for bunions. The Dr also made a vertical cut in the bone and lowered and shortened the joint and then used a couple of screws hold things together until it heals. I am only about 3 1/2 weeks post surgery so I don't know what the outcome will be.

Re: spur on top of foot

I had a bone spur on the top of my foot near the base of my big toe. My first procedure was simialr to danged feet. Like Eko I have also had a fusion of the big toe (procedure #3 - 6 weeks post op). Procedure #2 was a titanium joint in the big toe.

I had surgery to remove a bone spur 1 1/2 years ago. It seemed to heal o.k. , but now it has grown back. The doctor says he doesn't want to take away any more bone. He suggested a cortizone shot or orthotics. It hurts all the time now.

Re: spur on top of foot

When I went for the surgical consult, my Dr. was very specific stating that if all he did was remove the spur or growth and not correct the structure of the foot the condition would return. He also said he wants me to use orthotics after surgery to help the re-structure of the foot.

I would consider talking to a different Dr. someone else may have a better solution for you.

Re: spur on top of foot

The type of spur I have is located on top of my foot, pretty much dead center. Picture the area where the knot in your shoelaces would be. Has anyone had one like that removed? I've done cortisone for a over a year now, and I also wear orthodics because of a heel spur I had removed a few years ago.
