Hammer Toe Surgery

Hammer toe surgery, also known as hammertoe correction surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to correct a deformity called hammer toe. Hammer toe is a condition in which one or more of the middle toes bend downward at the middle joint, resembling a hammer.


The surgery aims to straighten the affected toe or toes, alleviate pain, and improve functionality. The procedure involves different techniques depending on the severity of the deformity and the patient's specific circumstances. Some common surgical techniques for hammer toe correction include:

  • Tendon transfer: This procedure involves repositioning the tendons responsible for bending and straightening the toe to restore proper alignment.
  • Joint resection (arthroplasty): In this procedure, the surgeon removes a portion of the bone at the affected joint to allow the toe to straighten. Fusion (arthrodesis):
  • Fusion surgery involves removing the joint surface and fusing the bones together to stabilize the toe in a straight position.
  • Implant insertion: In some cases, a small implant, such as a pin or wire, may be inserted into the toe to maintain proper alignment during the healing process.
