When calluses and corns do not respond to treatment or if they are developing due to a foot deformity, surgery may be necessary. A podiatrist performs the procedure to remove a corn or callus. It is important to note calluses from foot or toe bone deformities are likely to come back. In these cases, if surgery is considered, it should focus on correcting the deformity rather than removing the callus or corn. Screws or pins can be inserted into the metatarsal bones to correct any deformity that causes calluses and corns. Other surgical options include removing extra bones or shaving of abnormally shaped bones or spurs. Recovery can take up to eight weeks.
