Hammertoe repairs

A hammertoe is a toe with the middle joint always bent. The toe might make finding shoes difficult and cause pain.

Nonsurgical treatment for hammertoe involves making sure to wear shoes with plenty of room in the toes and home exercises. If the nonsurgical treatment doesn’t work, you may have surgery.

In the surgery, a amount of bone is removed to make more space and the toe is straightened out.

After the surgery you may have to wear a special shoe or boot to protect your toe while it heals.
