Whether or not you need hammertoe surgery largely depends on your unique condition. Hammertoes that are stuck in a bent position, painful, prone to corns or skin sores, or are not responding to conservative treatments will probably need surgical correction to eliminate your discomfort. If your toe is still flexible, padding or strapping the toe helps the pain, or shoe changes reduce your symptoms, most likely you will not need an invasive procedure.
Dr. Darren Silvester here at Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic will work with you to find a treatment plan that best fits your needs and your activity levels. Hopefully conservative treatments will relieve your discomfort. If surgery is needed, our expert staff will work closely with you to make the procedure as successful as possible. Seek treatment early to avoid hammertoe surgery. Contact our office in Pleasanton, TX, for an appointment or more information about conservative care.
