Doctors - A Few Questions

Posted by Darlene on 10/22/04 at 12:40 (161991)

I may be having a neurectomy in the near future. I also have a hammertoe that isn't a huge problem, but after the neurectomy I am hoping to have more shoe choices making it more of a problem.

1. Would it make sense to have both of these done at once?

2. What exactly is done in hammertoe surgery?

3. What would the recovery be like in terms of pain and time?

4. Does a neurectomy reduce the fat pads in the forefoot?

Thank you.
