Toe Joint Replacement

At Towson Orthopaedic Specialists, we believe conservative, non-surgical options should always be utilized before undergoing more invasive operations. To this end, we will encourage you to try a series of non-invasive treatments first, such as physical therapy, stretching, prescription medication, and orthotics and braces, recommended based on your unique concerns and anatomic indications. These steps may help to alleviate your pain and/or reduce the need for surgical intervention. If after attempting conventional methods you find no improvement, we may advise you to undergo an arthroscopic joint replacement, which will replace your affected joints with metal and polyethylene (plastic) prostheses.

Toe Replacement Surgery

Toe joint replacement may be a preferred method over fusion, which typically reduces or eliminates mobility of the treated area. If you’re suffering from significant bone and cartilage damage, the joint will be removed and an artificial joint comprised of polyethylene (plastic) and metal will be used as a replacement.

Toe Replacement Recovery

Our experienced orthopedic surgeons are extensively trained in minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques for small joint replacements, and this type of surgery typically will be performed as an outpatient procedure. As a result, you should be able to return home the same day as the operation. We also utilize a rapid recovery program featuring state-of-the art pain management techniques, and we believe these methods can enhance your comfort and help you heal more quickly. While everyone recovers at a different rate, we are committed to making this process as swift, safe, and effective as possible.
