Pros & Cons of MIS Hammertoe Surgery
If I Choose to Have MIS Hammertoe Surgery, What can I Expect?
As is the case with all procedures with our MIS Hammertoe Surgeons, we treat hammertoes with minimally invasive surgery. Depending on the severity of your condition, our board-certified surgeons will perform one of three minimally invasive surgical procedures. Minimally invasive surgery is fast, safe, and more cost-effective than other surgical procedures. And, if the hammer toes have caused the growth of painful corns, those will also be removed as part of your treatment.
You’ll be able to walk and drive immediately following surgery and many of our patients go back to work the next day. You will need to wear a post-operative shoe for about a week following the operation.
