Tenotomy for hammer toes

Posted by Mike S on 1/05/04 at 13:41 (141415)

I have hammer toes. A podiatrist recommended a tenotomy and toes 3 and 4 of each foot (reducible) and invasive remodling of the 5th toe (the pinky on each foot) that is a much longer recovery. I am thinking about just having the tenotomy done first on each foot. Anyone with experience with this surgery that they can share? Positives, negatives, worthwhile?
