Surgery for Problems of the Small Toes

Surgery for Problems of the Small Toes

The three main problems that can happen are deformity, pain in your toe joints and metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of your foot).

Toe deformities happen when the tendons that move your toes get too tight or out of balance. The toe can rub on other toes and on the inside of your shoe, causing pressure and pain.
