Mi Hammertoe Treatment Options

Depending on several factors, such as the presence or severity of pain, your surgeon may simply recommend a change in footwear, padding for your corns and calluses, splinting, or he/she may prescribe custom-made shoe inserts to correct your foot mechanics.

However, when medications and shoe modifications fail to control the problem, your surgeon may recommend surgery. Surgery is often a last resort measure, but it can provide significant relief by addressing the cause of hammertoes. Only your surgeon will know when surgery is the best option for you.
