Toe Deformity Correction
Find out how surgeons can correct toe deformities, what to expect from the procedure and the recovery time
An incision will be made over the toe deformity, and frequently a second incision is required over the base of the toe as well.
The toe will then be straightened by lengthening tendons, and removing a small amount of bone from the toe.
The straightened toe will then be fixed either internally by stitching tendons together, or occasionally utilising a wire. If a wire is used, it will be removed in the clinic at six weeks.
You will be advised to walk on your heel for the first few weeks after which you should be able to start wearing soft shoes and putting pressure through the whole foot. The stitches will need removing two weeks following surgery. The swelling can take several months to completely settle.
