Toe deformation correction

One of the most common toe deformations is hallux valgus, the great toe deformation, and hammer toes.

Toe deformation correction before and after

Toe deformation correction before and after

*The effect, result, risks, and recovery period depend on the individual peculiarities of the human body.

At such a pathology the great (first) toe is dislocated medially and its bone deviates laterally, with bunion, and other toes (as a rule, the second and the fifth ones) bend in the form of a hammer (hammertoe). These deformations are often accompanied by toe twists over each other, pain in joints and painful blisters.

Possible causes of deformations

  • Platypodia (flat foot).
  • Joint diseases (arthritis).
  • Soft tissue inflammation.
  • Uncomfortable footware.
  • Obesity.
  • Professional activity (sport, ballet).
  • Traumas.
  • Inheritance.

Types and pecularities of the surgery

During the surgery the toe deformation is corrected, toes are placed in the right position and bunions are removed. If necessary, a radical treatment is carried out – the arch of foot is corrected and flat foot is eliminated.

Methods of surgery manipulations depend on the types of deformation: deformations can be soft (non-rigit) and fixed (rigid).

  1. In case of soft (non-rigit) deformation surgery is performed on soft tissues – tendons and plantar ligaments.
  2. Fixed (rigit) deformations require surgery on bones, including osteotomy, in order to:
    • Remove bunion of the great toe.
    • Reconstruct the toe’s bone.
    • Balance the muscle around the joint to avoid deformation recurrence.

General contraindications: cancer, cardio-vascular and acute infectious diseases, chronic hypertensive disease, thyroid diseases, diabetis, blood-clotting disorder, inflammatory conditions in feet.
