Second toe cross over and sewing toes together??
I am a 53 year old fit woman - I have a second toe [B]really[B][/B][/B] crossing over my big toe and a neuroma between 2nd and 3rd toe and third toe moving towards second toe.
Met with my orthopedic surgeon today - and she doesn't feel that I need my bunion operated on - no pain and toe fairly straight - great news...
but is going to remove neuroma, straighten out and put a pin in second toe (may have to remove a bit of bone) and it will still fit between big toe and third toe nicely -
BUT...and I haven't heard of this before (or can't find much info about it on the web) - she wants to sew the skin together on the second and third toe about 2/3 of the way up to stabilize both...
Has anyone had this done or heard of this - she is an Ortho doc with a great reputation - but am just curious - if you have had this done, results?
