This has to be a troll! I mean what Doctor, would ever do a surgery like that just so someone can fit into a ski boot? I'm no Doc but I'm calling BS on this. Unless there is some other medical condition. No Doctor would ever remove a perfectly good toe. Removing a toe would effect balance and how you walk let alone ski. healing and rehab would take months. With all the modern methods of boot fitting it would be far less costly to simply get a proper fitting boot.
Hey Utah, Don't take it so seriously! Maybe the guy has six toes or the doc can't make enough through insurance so he is doing cosmetic surgery. Lot's of perfectly good noses have been modified. LewBob
