Re: hammer toe surgery

I do not have statistics for you. The surgery that is described is probably an arthrodesis or fusion. There are several ways this can be accomplished and your doctor described one, which is probably what he/she is most comfortable doing.

You are right about the "too good to be true" part because your toe is numb and don't think it won't wake up. Common sense would tell you that after having something cut on, it should be elevated protected and allowed to heal appropriately.

If you are concerned, why not get another opinion?
