Hammertoes can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Often times we see hammertoes associated with bunions and it is important to treat both conditions. These can be challenging conditions for patients, and it is important to find proper fitting shoes and comfortable shoe gear. There are quite a few options to help alleviate hammertoe pain and discomfort and slow down the progression of the deformity. Patients that are interested in hammertoe surgery will require an x-ray to evaluate the deformity and determine the appropriate procedure selection. In addition we always recommend general overall foot evaluation to make sure additional deformities are not associated with the hammertoes. The majority of hammertoe procedures can be performed at our on-site surgery center, which saves patients both time and money.
