Severe cases of hammer toe greatly affect the structure of the toes. The swelling, deformity and other signs and symptoms of the condition will eventually affect the function of the toes and the feet as a whole. In cases where the toes become fixed in a certain inflexible position, the hammer toe doctor Boynton Beach usually performs certain surgical procedures to correct it.
The surgical procedures done by podiatrists to best manage severe cases of hammer toe condition include relocating a tendon to another area; releasing tendons that are short, and placing in steel pins to fix the affected toes' position. All surgical procedures for the management of hammer toe are available at Mattison Podiatry Group, which is one of the top podiatry centers in Florida.
