Are you toes starting to curl?  Do you have discolored small bumps on your toes?  Do they hurt in shoes?  

You may have a phalangeal joint contracture; more commonly known as a hammertoe.  These painful deformities are caused by an imbalance of the tendons in your foot.  They are very common.  More conservative measures such as wide shoes, activity changes, padding cal all be helpful.  Stretching splints can help loosen up tendons and orthotics can help restore balance. However,  the only way to correct hammertoes is by surgical intervention.  
 
This simple outpatient procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and you are usually able to get back into a shoe  at 2-3 weeks.  The results are excellent and most of the time all your toes can be done at once without elongating your recovery.  
 
Please feel free to call with any questions or to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors today.
