There has been little emphasis placed on the excision of accessory bones of the foot. The authors present a review of the literature and a description of a surgical procedure for excision of the hallux interphalangeal joint sesamoid using minimal incision technique. A detailed analysis of the anatomy involved is also presented. A variety of other procedures for excision of this accessory bone are reviewed.
