Sesa who?: Sesamoid issues can be very difficult to treat. Knowing what you are treating is essential. The basics begin with the right diagnosis. These bones come in all size sand shapes and comparative views from the other foot are necessary to get to the problem. ultimately, either partial or total removal may be in your future. To remove all doubt, consult with a foot specialist.
