What is a hammertoe?

Do you have a bend in the middle joint of one of your toes? You may be developing a hammertoe. It is very common for primary care physicians to refer their patients to a foot specialist, like Dr. Richard Swails or Dr. Dustin Lloyd, when the signs of a hammertoe deformity start to present. These include the shifting position on one or more toes, corns and callouses where toes rub together, and the inability to rest toes in a normal position. Drs. Swails and Lloyd have many years of experience as board-certified and fellowship-trained podiatrists and can help you with a hammertoe by treating the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that become barriers for the toes to remain in a relaxed position.

When you come into our Frisco, TX facility, you may already have imaging and other documentation to share with our podiatrists. We welcome the information, but we may also take additional or more advanced imaging when required. Our main priority is to provide you with the most up-to-date techniques and treatments to relieve your hammertoe condition and discomfort. Once the toe is in a very rigid, bent position, surgery may be required. Drs. Swails and Lloyd want to offer you a consultation for your hammertoe to protect the bones and joints in your feet. Contact our office today to set up your first appointment at Preston Surgery Center.

Relieving the pain of Hammertoe

There is no need to have a hammertoe surgery at the hospital when you can have it as an outpatient procedure at Preston Surgery Center. We can save you from paying higher deductibles by performing your surgery at our AAAASF-accredited surgical facility instead of the hospital. The only way to repair your hammertoe is with surgery. Drs. Swails and Lloyd can offer you the same surgery at Preston Surgery Center, but at a much lower cost. We will pass the savings on to you. In addition, you will have an estimated bill on what you will be responsible to pay. You can expect an itemized bill that outlines your surgical fees and what it all includes. We can also share with you what our pricing costs are online to see if it is less expensive for you to make an out-of-pocket payment instead of filing through your insurance. Preston Surgery Center wants to make this procedure as easy for you as possible. Call today for an appointment in Frisco, TX.
