sesamoid bone removal - big toe

well, we've narrowed down my pain and numbness to the sesamoid bone in the big toe - it causes pain daily and I have discomfort walking and shoes are bothersome. Upon palpation I see stars! Since this has been going on for quite a long time my podiatrist has suggested removing the sesamoid bone and shaving any areas that need it. MRI and CAT scans have shown no other growths - although last year's MRI did show an cyst in the joint of the toe last year- but CAT scan did not show anything last month. What's your take on this procedure?
