Surgery for Problems of the Small Toes

Surgery for Problems of the Small Toes


The three main problems that can happen are deformity, pain in your toe joints and metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of your foot).

Toe deformities happen when the tendons that move your toes get too tight or out of balance. The toe can rub on other toes and on the inside of your shoe, causing pressure and pain.

Various anaesthetic techniques are possible. The surgery may involve releasing or lengthening tendons, putting joints back into place, straightening a toe, and cutting and realigning the bones of your toes.
