A hammer toe is a toe that is bent because of a muscle imbalance around the toe joints. The imbalance causes the toe to bend at one or more joints, pushing the middle of the toe upward in a claw-like position.
If you notice such changes in your toe, it is important to seek proper treatment. Hammer toes never get better without some type of intervention and the sooner it is treated, the better the outcome.
The podiatrists at University Foot and Ankle Institute have revolutionized the approach to hammer toe correction. We have decades of combined experience and pride ourselves in offering the most advanced diagnostic technology and treatment options available in the most relaxed and comfortable environment.
