Hammertoe Surgery Procedure Review

Hammertoe SurgeryHammertoe surgery may be required when the toe becomes stiff and bent downward in an almost claw like in appearance. If hammertoe is diagnosed and treated early, hammertoe surgery might be avoided. The second toe is most often affected by this condition. Wearing shoes that are too tight or too short can force the toe into an unnatural bent position. Over time, the tendons in the toe become shorter as they tighten.
