Yes, absolutely! This surgery is very complicated and needs an experienced hand. Dr. K is one of the most experienced toe-lengthening surgeons in the country.
Dr. K will explain exactly what he will do during your procedure, but generally speaking, he will surgically place a small device on the toe bone. By turning a screw on the device at home, your toe bone will be gradually lengthened over time. These adjustments are usually painless. Alternatively, Dr. K might cut the toe bone in half and insert a graft between the two halves of the toe bone to lengthen the toe. After a few weeks, the bone graft heals and becomes part of the original toe bone.
