The foot surgeons of Slocum Center specialize in the surgical and nonsurgical treatment of hammertoes. In fact, we have been treating foot and ankle issues for more than four decades. That means your hammertoe will be corrected by a team whose experience is virtually unmatched in the area.
One of several types of toe deformities, a hammertoe has a bend in the middle toe joint. The resulting deformity can cause pain on the top or at the end of the toe. Tight shoes will aggravate the pain.
Shoes that accommodate the deformed toe decrease the pressure and help relieve the pain. Shoe inserts or pads also may help. If these treatments do not relieve the discomfort, surgical treatment may be necessary.
