HAMMER TOE REPAIR

Hammer toe repair

Description

Several kinds of surgery can repair hammer toe. Your bone or foot doctor will recommend the kind that will work best for you. Some of the surgeries include:

  • Remove parts of the toe bones.
  • Cut or transplant the tendons of the toes (tendons connect bone to muscle).
  • Fuse the joint together to make the toe straight and no longer able to bend.

After surgery, you may have surgical pins or a wire (Kirschner, or K-wire) to hold the toe bones in place while your toe heals.
