Benefits of Webbed Toe Separation Surgery

It’s true that webbed toes do not necessarily affect someone’s ability to walk or other activities. However, while there may be no physical harm, someone’s mental state may be affected by how they are viewed by others, causing them to feel embarrassed or have lower self-esteem.

This is why the biggest benefit of this type of surgery is to allow someone to feel like they look “normal”, and is the main reason someone chooses to have separation surgery. In the rare cases that there is an impaired function in the feet, then webbed toe surgery can provide the best treatment for restoring full function, allowing the toes to be able to move independently.

FAQ

How is a tendon or ligament injury diagnosed?

During the examination of your foot and ankle, the podiatrist will take x-rays to look for broken bones. An MRI or CT scan may also be recommended depending on your symptoms and the location of the injury.

How can I prevent injuries?

While it is not always possible to prevent an injury, some steps can be taken to help lower the risk of a foot or ankle injury. Wear supportive shoe gear when engaging in high-impact activities. Add proper stretching and warm-up to your exercise routine. It is also important to know your limits and avoid pushing your muscles to do what they are not ready to.
