As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with foot surgery that you should discuss with your surgeon. These potential risks and complications with products used to treat hammertoes include implant breakage, infection at the incision site, pain, inflammation and swelling at implant site, allergic reaction to implant material(s), loosening or dislocation of implant resulting in revision surgery, deterioration or loss of bone, over-production of bone, blood vessel blockage, and negative bodily response due to implant rejection and/or implant wear debris.
In addition, your weight, age, and medical history determine your specific risks and your results. All patients are different, and surgery may not be right for everyone.
