What is Toe Shortening Surgery?

Toe shortening surgery, also known as hammertoe correction, is a surgical procedure aimed at correcting deformities in the toes, such as hammertoes or claw toes. These conditions occur when the muscles and ligaments around the toe joints become imbalanced, causing the toes to bend abnormally. Toe shortening surgery involves realigning the toe joints, removing excess bone, and adjusting soft tissues to restore proper alignment and function.

Benefits of Hammertoe Correction

Hammertoe correction offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Alleviating pain and discomfort associated with walking and wearing shoes.
  • Improving the appearance of the feet, enhancing self-confidence.
  • Preventing further progression of the deformity and associated complications.
  • Restoring normal toe alignment and function for improved mobility.

  • Arthrodesis: Fuses the toe joint to prevent further deformity and provide stability.
  • Tendon transfer: Repositions the tendons to correct muscle imbalances and realign the toe.

Toe Shortening Surgery Before and After
