Deformed toes, such as hammertoes or claw toes, can be painful and restrict your mobility. At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, Dr. Patrick Burge and his skilled team provide expert treatment for toe deformities, striving to restore function and comfort for patients in the Lakewood area of Dallas, Texas.

Understanding Toe Deformities

Toe deformities often occur due to an imbalance in the muscles, tendons, or ligaments responsible for holding the toes straight. This can lead to the toe bending into an abnormal position, causing discomfort and potential mobility issues.
