Best Treatment for Hammertoes in Orlando!!!
Hammer Toes appears when the ligaments and tendons around the toes are contracted and toes take on a “claw-like” appearance. When the toes come in contact with the top of a shoe, then the problem is more aggravated because it’s causing “corns”.
The muscle around the toe are lengthened, in this case we make a small cut across one of the joints, for this we use a special drill that allows the joint to be realigned and thus the toe straightened. When the surgery is done it’s recommended that the patient wear a post-surgical shoe for one week.
