Hammertoe Repair


A hammertoe is a condition in which the toe buckles, causing the middle joint of the affected toe to poke out. This condition is often aggravated by tight-fitting shoes that put pressure on the hammertoe. Often a corn develops at this site.


Treatment for hammertoes may include:

  • applying a toe pad specially positioned over the bony protrusion
  • changing your footwear to accommodate the deformed toe
  • surgical removal
