Hammertoe Surgeries in Chicago
illi News/10015810

CHICAGO - April 25, 2019 - illiNews -- Hammer toe is a deformity of the toe, in which one or both joints bend abnormally into a "C" shape. Podiatrists in Chicago perform hammertoes surgeries if necessary.
Two types of hammertoe exist:

Flexible hammertoes are in the developmental stage and the affected toes are still moveable at the joint.
Rigid hammertoes are more serious. The tendons tighten and the joints become misaligned and immobile.

This condition is caused by:

Muscle imbalance
Rheumatoid arthritis
Shoes that do not fit well

Symptoms of hammertoe include:

Pain at the top of the bent toe.
Corns at the top of the joint.
Redness and swelling at the joint contracture.
Restricted or painful motion of the toe joint.
Pain in the ball of the foot at the base of the affected toe.

When a hammer toe becomes problematic, surgery can be performed to remove part of the bone and release the contracted tendon. The surgical approach to correcting hammertoe depends on the severity of the deformity and other considerations.
