At Carrollton Foot Center, we understand how debilitating foot pain can be, especially if it’s caused by a hammertoe. Hammertoe is a condition where the middle joint of a toe becomes permanently bent, resembling a hammer. This condition can cause discomfort, pain, and even make walking difficult.

Hammertoes are caused by an imbalance in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that hold the toe straight. They can be hereditary, or caused by factors such as poorly fitting shoes, injury, or underlying medical conditions such as arthritis.

If you suspect you may have a hammertoe, it’s important to have it evaluated by a podiatrist. Dr. Khavari, our experienced podiatrist, will perform a thorough physical examination and take x-rays to determine the extent of the deformity.

If caught early, hammertoes can often be treated with conservative measures. Conservative treatment may involve the use of orthotics, shoe modifications, and padding to relieve pressure and pain. These treatments can help to slow the progression of the deformity and provide relief from symptoms.

If conservative measures fail to relieve pain, or if the deformity is too advanced, surgical intervention may be necessary. At Carrollton Foot Center, we offer a variety of surgical options for hammertoes, including arthroplasty and arthrodesis. Dr. Khavari has extensive experience with these procedures and is skilled at using the most advanced surgical techniques to minimize discomfort and promote rapid healing.

Our goal is to provide our patients with effective, personalized treatment options that help them to live pain-free and enjoy the activities they love. If you’re experiencing foot pain or suspect you may have a hammertoe, contact Carrollton Foot Center today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Khavari.
