dislocated hammer toe

Dr. Abrams, do you feel that you should ALWAYS perform a tendon transfer when you have surgery on a dislocated hammer toe? Also, how long do you recommend leaving the k-wire in the toe after having the surgery? I have been told that I need surgery, and I'm not sure about the the tendon transfer part. Some of the drs. that I have seen, say NOT to have the transfer as it is still controversial. What do you recommend?

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
