Service Department Contact :
We are specialist foot surgery clinic in London specialising in toe correction surgery for deformity of toes. Hammer toes can cause significant pain and difficulty in wearing shoes comfortably. The toe deformity progresses over time until the toe becomes dislocated. Our toe surgery specialists perform thousands of toe straightening procedures every year under local and general anaesthetic using the very latest techniques.

Hammer Toe Operation at London Foot & Ankle Surgery

Hammer toe deformities are treated as a day case foot surgery basis at our centre. The hammer toe correction procedure has been specially been designed to involve the very latest nextra implant designed in the USA. The procedure can be performed safely and painlessly under local anaesthesia. The technique has improved patient experience from traditional toe surgeries that involve wires sticking out of the end of toes. Nextra Toe Surgery 1

Day Case Hammer Toe Surgery:

Hammer Toe Surgery

Traditional hammer toe surgery involved using wires sticking out of your toes for 6-8 weeks. This did not allow return to normal shoes and a much longer recovery time as the wires needed removing before full activity is resumed. We perform hundreds of hammer toe corrections using these techniques every year with quality care audits ensuring clinical outcomes and patient experiences are specifically audited.

Modern hammer toe surgery that is performed at London Foot & Ankle Surgery has revolutionised the patient experience allowing predictable toe correction that is acceptable both cosmetically and functionally.

The Evolution of Hammer Toe Surgery:

Like all things modern, hammer toe surgery techniques have taken a modern approach. Both in terms of philosophy, techniques and technology.


What’s Important to patient and foot surgeon:

    • Straight and cosmetically accepted toe position
    • Minimise swelling
    • Return to smart footwear
    • Prevent recurrence of deformity
    • No wires sticking out of toes

    Return to Life & Shoes:

      • Hammer toe surgery patients spend 2 weeks wearing a post op shoe and keeping the foot dry.
      • Once the sutures are removed, you wear a sports shoe
      • Typically return to full activity after 6-8, when x-rays show adequate bone healing, you can begin transitioning to normal activity.
      • The core principles of this technique ultimately come back to the foundation of our entire practice: create procedures that allow patients to treat their conditions preventatively, without the long and sometimes difficult recovery that older methods offer.
