Hammertoe correction

The term "hammertoe" is typically over-diagnosed, and is more of an all-encompassing term to describe a number of deformities in the toe. The terms "mallet toe" and "claw toe" are also used to describe similar cases. Hammertoes are toes that have an abnormal bend at one or more of the joints, which can lead to cramping, irritation and pain. Chronic rubbing of the toe against shoes can eventually lead to discoloration, deformed toenails, calluses and corns.


Long toe surgery

Long toes are toes that do not fit with the typical toe pattern. The problem most often occurs in the second, third, and fourth toes and can lead to cramping, irritation and pain. Chronic rubbing of the toe against shoes can eventually lead to discoloration, deformed toenails, calluses and corns.


Short toe surgery

Short toes are less common and often the result of a hereditary condition known as Brachymetatarsis. Short toes can result in discomfort, irritation and pain in shoe wear. Surgery is often possible to lengthen the toe and correct toe alignment.


Corn removal

Corns are areas of thickened tissue on the toes that can lead to irritation and pain. Corns are very commonly found on the second toes and fifth (or pinky) toes, where rubbing on the shoes occurs. Corn formation is often accompanied with discoloration of the skin and could be the result of a long toe or hammertoe chronically rubbing against shoe wear.


Discolored toe restoration

Discoloration is most often the early stages of corn or callus formation, and is caused by rubbing in the shoe. Often discoloration is associated (or the direct result of) corns, hammertoes and long toes. Discoloration can occur on any part of the foot, but is most commonly seen on corns, toenails and other parts of the toe.
