Hammertoes are very common in patients. Almost every patient we see has some sort of hammertoe. Most of the time a hammertoe does not cause pain. If a hammertoes causes pain or skin breakdown a minimally invasive surgery would be helpful.
About the Procedure
Toe straightening or hammertoe correction surgery is a type of surgery done for hammertoes. If your toe is crooked or contracted there is most likely a small, in office surgery that can be done to straighten the toe. Most patients can walk out of the office the same day without pain medication and also go right back to work. Don’t let your hammertoes keep you from showing off your feet!
