Bunion surgery involves an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and the removal or realignment of soft tissue and bone. This is done to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the joint. Small wires, screws, or plates may be used to hold the bones in place.
Ingrown Toenail: A condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the flesh. The condition usually affects the big toe. People who have diabetes are at greater risk of complications.
Matricectomy: Procedure to destroy all or some of the cells at the base of the nail to prevent the nail from growing.
The goal of surgical correction is to improve alignment of the foot. This allows for more normal pressures during standing and walking. A combination of procedures is performed to repair the ligaments and tendons that support the arch. Bone cuts are often made to help restore the arch. Proper correction of flatfoot deformity can often help to improve pain and walking ability.
If, for any reason, you suspect a problem, or are experiencing foot or ankle injury, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible to avoid the risk of long-term damage.

Dr. Cesar was a dream! He was extremely kind and explained everything that I had going on with my foot. He showed me my x-rays and really broke down why I was in pain. When he walked in he shook my hand and my partners hand which I thought was so lovely to include her. The assistant made me feel very welcome and she was so sweet. I was very pleased with my visit.

Dr. Cesar is an excellent medical professional. I saw him for the first time, when I was suffering from an extremely painful ingrown toenail. I admit that I had let it get much worse than I should have, but I was unable to get a recommendation for a good Podiatrist. My wife researched Dr. Cesar's qualifications and decided he was very well qualified and he had great reviews. Well to make a long story short, he was amazingly professional, fast and completely painless. After Dr. Cesar conducted his procedure,I experienced immediate relief. I was able to go back to work the next day and I felt absolutely no pain and suffered no complications. I highly recommend Dr. Harold Cesar to all of my friends and co-workers.
