Our team of orthopedic doctors performs advanced toe surgery at their Cedar Park, TX, and Austin, TX, offices. Our procedures can benefit patients suffering from a number of conditions, including hammertoe, bunions, pinched nerves, or broken bones.

Recovery from toe surgery will depend on the type of procedure you undergo. In some cases, you may be back to normal activities in just a few weeks.

We will provide appropriate medications and regular checkups to ensure that you are healing properly. We will also refer you to a physical therapist to speed your recovery.
