Toe problems

Many patients attend The London Podiatry Centre complaining of claw toes, hammer or mallet toes. Other conditions include overlapping toes, webbed toes and "cock up" toes. All of these deformities can be treated conservatively using such devices as custom silicone splints but usually, the only way to correct the deformity is by means of surgery. Most operations are performed under local anaesthetic with rapid recovery and return to work

Please visit our sister web site cornsurgery.com for more information as most corns form as a consequence of misshapen toes!

A hammer or claw toe can often result from a bunion deformity. Surgery generally involves correcting both deformities.
