A bone spur, or overgrowth of bone, may occur alone or with a hammertoe. Bone spurs have a variety of causes. Usually, they result in pain, interfere with the use of your foot, and detract from its appearance.

Treatment: Minimal Incision Surgery.
In this technique, a small incision is made and a small rasp (similar to a dental burr) is inserted to smooth the bone.

Follow-up Care:
A follow-up visit is necessary to remove any stitches, and to check the results of your surgery.
