Fusion of the toe

Fusion of the toe

Fusion of the toe is often performed for people who have 'hammer toes'. The toe will be straightened by removing the joint of the toe. This is either called fusion of the toe, or arthrodesis. A cut is made over the top of the abnormal or arthritic joint. The surfaces of the joint are then removed and the toe is held in its correct position with a stout wire or, alternatively, screws. The wire passes down from the end of the toe and across the joint to be fused. After your operation, bending the toe will no longer be possible.

Submit a request for further information, a quotation or indicative cost. Your enquiry will be forwarded to up to 3 private healthcare providers. They will respond directly with further information.
