Hammertoe Deformity Correction
AMI-Hammertoe is Dr. K’s minimally invasive hammertoe deformity correction procedure. When it comes to cases of severe hammertoe, surgery is often required to fix the tendons and straighten the toes. Surgery helps get rid of the pain and enables you to resume regular activity. The good news is hammer toe surgery is an outpatient procedure, and requires minimal healing time.
Causes Of Hammertoe Deformity
Hammertoe deformity can happen because of a muscle imbalance, tight tendons and/or ligaments that normally hold the toe straight. Hammertoes can occur when toe muscles become weak, which puts pressure on the toe’s tendons and joints. Narrow ill-fitting shoes, your genetic predisposition (family inheritance), or an underlying medical condition can help cause hammertoes.
Schedule A Consultation
If left untreated over a long period of time, flexible toe joints can stiffen and become rigid toe joints stuck in the curled position. For rigid toe joints, Dr. K uses minimally invasive surgery to correct hammertoes. Ask about our new advanced AMI-HAMMERTOE™ procedure by contacting us here.
