Hammertoe surgery

I recently had surgery on two toes (toes next to pinkie toes) on both feet. I'm impressed with the results on the left toe, but not the right. The corn and the pain on the left toe is gone. Unfortunately, the right toe still has pain and the corn. Shaving the corn on the right toe only offers temporarily relief; then of course the corn grows back and so does that pain. My doctor said that there was nothing more he could do for me and that surgery was not recommended since it could cause more scar tissue to form

Is this true? Is there nothing else a doctor can do for me to help eliminate this chronic problem?
