Re: Overlapping Toes

: Hi Dr Vivian
: My second toe on my right foot was always longer than my big toe and now overlaps it to a significant extent. It looks weird and is a real problem when I have to wear shoes (even wide ones) The second joint is also quite swollen. I have tried various ways of restraining/retraining the toe over the years , but it always flips back over the big toe. What is involved in surgery to correct this problem?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
