Toe arthritis is a common condition that affects the joints in the toes. It usually affects the big toe, but other toes may suffer this painful condition.
Typical symptoms of toe arthritis include pain, swelling, and inflammation around the joints, problem or pain when trying to bend the toes, and numbness, burning, or tingling in the foot or ankle.
The toe arthritis usually occurs as a result of wear and tear of the cartilage in the toe joints. Moreover, inflammation of the toe joints can also cause painful arthritis.
Regardless of the cause, toe arthritis requires medical attention to alleviate the pain.
Vera Gillette is an energetic woman who enjoys traveling around the country with her husband. Unfortunately, she developed severe toe arthritis, and she had to cancel several adventurous trips due to the toe pain.
She had an appointment with Dr. Benjamin Tehrani, one of the top LA podiatrists. Dr. Benji was able to immediately diagnose Vera’s condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment. In his expert opinion, for Vera’s condition, a cleanup procedure was the perfect treatment.
During the procedure, Dr. Benji used stem cell technology to heal her cartilage and also removed her bone spurs. Only two weeks after the surgery, Vera was happily back in her athletic shoes feeling comfortable like never before.
While the team and Dr. Benji are thrilled that Vera is back on the road with her husband, they will surely miss her positive energy and lovely charm.
