A common complaint we see at Advanced Foot and Ankle Center is a painful spot on the bottom of the foot. The patient does not remember stepping on anything and it has gotten progressively larger and more painful. There are several different reasons for this issue but one of the more common causes is called an intractable plantar keratosis. When this occurs, you develop a deep, discrete, pinpoint area of callus that can become extremely painful. It may look small on the outside but underneath the skin it is much larger, kind of like an iceberg. These do not usually go away on their own, but treatment is straightforward and painless. At Advanced Foot and Ankle Center, our providers see patients experiencing this issue nearly every day and we can help you get back on your feet.
