Many patients consult us about unequal toe length. In some cases, when the second and third toes are very long this can cause them to turn, presenting corns/calluses on the underside. This unsightliness causes embarrassment to many patients when using open shoes or when walking barefoot on the beach or at the swimming pool
This abnormality can easily be rectified by shortening the toes at the first phalanges without touching the joints.
If, in addition, the toes are twisted, then the functionality of the tendons will also require surgical modification for them to remain straight and not become deformed again.
These surgical procedures require the patient to stay off the operated foot for a short period of time after which normal walking is regained. This type of surgery can be carried out on all toes even on the big / first toe. The results obtained are toes that are both harmonious and aesthetic in appearance.
