At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Lilly Khavari specializes in evaluating and treating calluses, which are thickened and hard layers of skin that form on the feet, most often under pressure points. Ill-fitting shoes, wearing shoes without socks, and areas of constant increased pressure are some of the leading causes for developing calluses on the feet.

The evaluation for calluses at Carrollton Foot Center begins with a thorough physical examination to assess the extent of the callus and underlying causes. Depending on the results of the evaluation, Dr. Khavari may recommend a range of treatment options.

Symptoms of calluses include thickened and rough skin, a hard bump at the site, and tenderness under the skin where the callus is present. Treatments for calluses include paring down the keratotic tissue and applying ointment to avoid infection of the treated area. Custom orthotics and shoe modification can also help to alleviate pressure on the affected area and prevent future callus formation.

In some instances, surgical intervention may be required to treat the underlying biomechanical issue and bone deformity that is causing the callus. Dr. Khavari works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals. With her expertise in evaluating and treating calluses, Dr. Khavari emphasizes a comprehensive approach that prioritizes patient comfort and satisfaction.

Overall, Dr. Khavari’s evaluation and treatment approach for calluses at Carrollton Foot Center emphasizes a personalized approach that prioritizes conservative, non-invasive interventions before considering more invasive options. The Carrollton Foot Center team is committed to providing compassionate care and support to patients throughout their evaluation and treatment journey. With Dr. Khavari’s expertise and dedication, patients can feel confident that they are receiving the highest quality care for their calluses.
