The Perfect 10! Aesthetic Toe Shortening
Hammertoe Correction @evofoot
Every one of us is a little different, and that’s a good thing. But when it comes to shoes, this sometimes creates a problem. When toes are too “long” or contracted (hammered), finding the right fitting shoe is close to impossible. Patients often resort to buying bigger shoes which fit poorly or force their feet into the correct size, resulting in hammertoes and unsightly calluses.
We’ve put and end to the compromise. For over 30 years, legacy procedures and hammertoe surgery (1) have overlooked the modern patient’s needs: a short, simple recovery experience with an aesthetically pleasing result. To accomplish this goal we had to invent an entirely new technique, so we did... The Perfect 10! Aesthetic Toe Shortening.

The evolution of hammertoe surgery
A modern perspective required an all new technique,
we're proud to have created it.
Traditional hammertoe surgery hasn't changed in 40 years. The modern patient has different needs than what procedures designed in the 60's offered. Traditional procedures like arthroplasty, and arthrodesis with K-Wire simply fail to meet the needs of the 21st century patient. That's why in 2001, we redesigned hammertoe surgery. Allowing us to adjust the length of the toe, we wanted our procedure to completely hide the incision. So we also invented the first ever side incision, minimal dissection, toe shortening and hammertoe correction. 13 years later, evofoot hammertoe patients can have their cake and eat it too!
"It's all about the details.
We obsess over the details."
Functional foot surgery without an aesthetically pleasing result can lead to a disappointed patient. We develop all of our procedures merging the best of two specialties, advanced foot surgery with modern plastic surgical techniques.
No detail is too small, which is why we implement the most advanced technologies to help get you better results. Think of it as foot surgery... for the 21st century.

Time before getting foot wet
The average time for skin to heal is 2-3 weeks. Once the incisions are healed you can get your foot wet.
Time before resuming normal activity
After the 4th or 5th week, when x-rays show quality bone healing, you can begin transitioning to normal activity (4).
Time before getting back to work
Once the skin is healed, you wear athletic shoes for 2 more weeks. During this time you can get back to work (5).
