Revision of hammertoes surgery is one of the most difficult problems to treat. Often, the amount of bone removed does not allow for easy correction of the deformed toes. In certain cases, there is enough bone and the bone cut made is incorrect resulting in poor toe alignment.
Most cases of hammertoe deformity can be corrected. The corrections are performed with the use of special pins and possibly bone graft to correct the length and alignment of the toes.
