What is hammertoe?

Hammertoe, also referred to as mallet toe, is characterized by an unusual upward bend in the joint closest to the toe nail. This foot deformity most often occurs in the second, third, or fourth toes and can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Frequently wearing poor-fitting shoes or high heels
  • Foot muscle or tendon imbalances
  • Injuries like toe fractures and stubs

If left untreated, hammertoe can prompt uncomfortable symptoms like calluses and corns, as well as pain and stiffness when trying to move the affected toe.

What does hammertoe treatment involve?

Many people with hammertoe are able to find relief from their symptoms with conservative measures like opting for more comfortable and roomier footwear, as well as wearing specially designed inserts or pads to encourage better toe positioning. Our physicians may also recommend simple exercises like gentle stretches and picking up small items with your feet to help strengthen toe muscles. If your hammertoe does not improve with conservative approaches, surgery to correct the toe joint may be recommended.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
