Do you have painful blisters, corns and even ulceration associated with your toes?
You may have a form of hammertoe which can affect any of the second, third, fourth, or fifth (little) toes. Abnormal bending of the toes can put pressure on the toe when wearing shoes, causing problems to develop.
Your podiatrist is skilled at nonsurgical care of hammertoes but for persistent issues a consultation with Mark Gilheany should be considered.
Surgical options for hammertoe shave greatly increased with understanding of minimal invasive techniques. It is now possible to have those painful toes addressed permanently with an office based procedures performed under local anaesthetic.
These procedures allow immediate weight bearing and return to footwear quickly.
More complex conditions may still require a hospital day stay with more extensive procedures, increasingly this is becoming less necessary.
At the Foot and Ankle Clinic our highly qualified team of Podiatrists are all members of the Australian Podiatry Association and offer a combined 50 years’ experience. They are trained to diagnose and effectively treat hammertoe via a range of treatments.
