Hammer Toe SurgeryA hammer toe is a foot deformity where the toe becomes bent at the joint. Hammer toes often cause pain and are associated with corns forming over the toe. Not only are hammer toes painful, they also cause a lot of people embarrassment. Conservative treatments for hammer toes include stretching, orthotics, padding and strapping of the toes. If you have tried these conservative treatments without relief of symptoms, surgically straightening the toes may be an good option for you. Our doctors at Manhattan Foot Specialists perform Minimally-invasive (hidden-incision) hammer toe surgery. All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.
What Is Hammer Toe?
A hammer toe is a toe that curls or is buckled. This condition can be very painful and make fitting into shoes difficult. This deformity can cause painful callused skin lesions called corns. See a Manhattan hammer toe surgeon or your local foot doctor in New York sooner rather than later to treat hammertoes.
