What Is Toe Shortening and Straightening?

At Cadogan Clinic, there are a variety of different toe correction surgeries available to treat the deformity of toes. 

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your toes, or you’re experiencing significant pain due to crooked or angular toes, then you’re likely a good candidate for corrective surgery. All toe surgeries are done as a day-case procedure.

A condition called hammer toe is a common deformity causing toes to bend downward instead of pointing forward and can cause significant pain and difficulty in wearing shoes comfortably. This toe deformity progresses over time until the toes become dislocated. It can affect any toe on the foot but most often affects the second or third toe. Although a hammer toe may be present at birth, it usually develops over time due to wearing ill-fitting shoe, or arthritis. In most cases, a hammer toe condition is treatable.

If you are unable to flex your toes then surgery is the only option to restore movement and will include the repositioning the toe, removing of the deformed or injured bone, and realigning your tendons.

Crooked or angular toes can cause discomfort and pain during normal activities such as walking or wearing certain shoes. Toe straightening surgery can restore a natural appearance to your feet by correcting misaligned toes. Misaligned toes are often directly related to the presence of bunions – a prominent bump at the base of the big toe. Surgery involves cutting the bone of the toe and realigning it. Pins, plates or screws may be necessary to hold your bone in place during recovery.

Many patients complain of unsightly, often uncomfortable long toes which have a tendency to press on shoes. Long toes can be surgically shortened. Depending on the severity and length of the toe, there are several methods to surgically shorten a toe. In general, the surgery involves removing a portion of the bone at the contracted joint, to realign the toe.
