So, by this time in the surgery, I’ve prepared the bones to fuse and then need to insert the screws. The special screws are called cannulated screws. The have a ‘cannula’, or hole down the center. This allows me to insert a temporary metal wire into the bones to hold them straight and to make sure I like the position before permanently fixing them. At this time the toe is straight and the contractures are lengthened. The toe is shorter and in a perfect position. This is a really rewarding surgery for me. I take a severely deformed toe and turn it into a better looking and better functioning toe.

I was no longer in the room. I was in a vehicle of some kind with the man. I was looking down from above the clouds.

The bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of your feet normally are well-balanced to distribute your body’s weight while standing, walking and running. When the first and second joints of your toes experience the prolonged stress that develops when the muscles that control them fail to work together properly, the pressure on the tendons that support them can lead to the curling or contraction known as hammertoe. Since the arched bending of hammertoe often causes the toe to rub against the top of the shoe’s toe box and against the sole, painful corns and calluses develop on the toes.
Legs and feet can become swollen due to a number of factors, including standing for long periods of time, pregnancy and injury.

Bunions-the big toe may be crossing over into the second toe’s area causing it to have to “curl” over the big toe. The second toe is the most commonly affected toe due to the presence of bunions, but also because it is the longest toe, which may lead to contracture in an attempt to become shorter to balance with the other toes. Hammer toe, claw toe, and mallet toe refer to toes that take on a bent or contracted position in which muscles and tendons tighten and shorten. Even though all three conditions look quite similar, they actually involve different joints of the toes.
The metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP) is located in the forefoot where the metatarsal and phalanx bones meet. Synovitis is a swelling of the joint lining. MTP synovitis is a common disorder caused by excessive stress on that joint, usually exacerbated by activity. The ligaments loosen and the joint may develop instability. People with rheumatoid arthritis are at an increased risk of developing MTP synovitis. The first thing to do if it looks like your toe is starting to contract into an unnatural curl is to see a podiatrist for an exam. It is possible that some padding around the area, orthotic devices, splints, injections or other medications can bring some relief.
