What is Aesthetic Toe-Straightening Surgery?

For mobility, comfort, and appearance, your toes should all pull together as a team. This includes them being correctly aligned and pointing forward. Unfortunately, a toe which goes a bit rogue and turns toward other toes instead of straight ahead is an issue for many people. Crooked and angular toes can make your feet appear awkward and can interfere with your stride and ability to wear different kinds of footwear. It can also lead to pain and discomfort.

Fortunately, those who struggle with a misaligned toe don’t have to live with the issue. At JAWSpodiatry in Hollywood, Florida, our foot and ankle specialists are experts in cosmetic foot and toe surgery, including procedures specifically focused on straightening toes.

We regularly perform aesthetic toe-straightening surgery to address issues such as crossover toes, a condition in which the second toe becomes displaced sideways leading it to cross over the big toe. Surgery for this condition often includes removing part of the bone in the toe along with repairing damaged ligaments, or we may fuse the joint together to reposition the toe and bring it into alignment.

Sometimes, it is the big toe that becomes misaligned and starts pointing toward the other toes. This often, but not always, is accompanied by the development of a bunion. Either as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with bunion removal, we perform surgery that straightens out the big toe to give a more natural appearance and places it in proper alignment with the other toes of the foot.

Many people who get aesthetic toe-straightening surgery do so because they like to wear sandals or open-toed shoes that expose their feet or wear stylish, tight-fitting shoes which they can’t fit into currently. Regardless of the reason for wanting toe-straightening surgery, podiatrists at JAWSpodiatry can help.
