Hammertoe Surgery

Skilled Surgeons Provide Long-Lasting Pain Relief

Hammertoes are a foot condition that causes abnormal bends in the middle joints of the toes. This causes the toes to curve upward, causing pain or difficulty moving the toe. Hammertoes may also develop calluses or corns as a result of the friction on the heightened joint. While conservative treatments can sometimes resolve hammertoes, our experts for hammertoe surgery in Manhattan, NY, offer surgeries to fix stubborn cases.

Causes of Hammertoes

A hammertoe is generally worsened by wearing high-heeled shoes or shoes with narrow toe boxes. Other causes are trauma to the affected toe, toe muscle instability, or an abnormality that causes the toe muscles to contract. Risk factors include arthritis, older age, and having a longer second toe.

Symptoms of Hammertoes

Hammertoes usually form on the toe adjacent to the big toe. Some symptoms of this condition are:

  • Pain
  • Physical deformity
  • Corn
  • Callus
  • Stiff joints
  • Joint swelling

Conservative treatments to relieve pain caused by hammertoes include wearing shoes with a larger, wider toe box, avoiding high heels, and wearing custom shoe inserts.
