Sesamoid Bone Fracture

A discussion of how the sesamoid bone in the foot becomes fractured, and how it is treated.

Sesamoid bones are two small bones under the big toe joint. They can become fractured during a forceful injury, and can also develop stress fractures. Sesamoid fractures are either treated with immobilization until they are healed, or they are surgically removed.

Dr. Kilberg is a foot and ankle specialist who practices medicine and surgery involving all parts of the foot, ankle, and associated lower leg. He is with Indiana Podiatry Group, practicing with Dr. Karl Fulkert and Dr. Scott Schulman, treating adults and children. He offers treatment for many foot conditions, including heel pain, bunions, hammertoes, flat feet, and nail disease, and provides the community with orthotics, ankle braces, and diabetic shoes. His patients come from a diverse geography, including greater Indianapolis, Noblesville, Fishers, Carmel, Westfield, Fortville, Lawrence, Sheridan, Pendleton, Lapel, McCordsville, and Cicero Indiana. Feel free to read about foot and ankle conditions in his Learning Library, or look through his numerous blogs, videos, and articles for more information.
