Toe separation

Patients born with one or more toes which are joined together is a condition called Syndactyly, commonly known as webbed toes. In our surgery we have treated many of these cases in both adults as well as in children.


The appearance of these toes causes embarrassment to sufferers and usually they will not show their feet in public. However, sufferers generally do not have foot functionality impairment.
Surgical treatment to separate the joined toes is done by “z” shaped incisions, which allow for the complete closure of the skin. It requires a very precise technique in order to completely cover the toes which face each other. The flap of skin used is from a graft taken from underneath the foot. The scar remaining after separating the toes is minimal.

Post surgery requires being off the operated foot for a short period. The toes swell slightly but this disappears after a few weeks.

After toe separation, the foot looks normal and patients can walk barefoot or wear sandals.
