- A case-based, practical guide to operative and non-operative management of the common hammertoe deformity
- Covers surgical approaches to the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) and metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints, as well as flexor tendon transfer and tenotomies, among others
- An excellent resource for practicing clinicians, residents and students alike
This book is intended to be a clinical casebook with concise case-based presentations focusing on hammertoe deformity treatment and correction. Each case will demonstrate a different approach for hammertoe deformity treatment. The goal is to illustrate a variety of strategies and challenges in treating this common deformity.Table of Contents
