what is done for a fractured toe?

2 doctor answers
Dr. Robert Kornfeld

Fractured toe: If the fracture is a displaced fracture, then the toe is anesthetized and reduced (meaning the bone segments are re-aligned). This may be done with or without surgery. The toes should be strapped and the foot placed in a shoe that cannot bend at the forefoot.

Immobilization : Toe strapping and rigid surgical shoe. On occasion if displaced or angulated, it may require surgical reduction.

Get another opinion: At this juncture i would suggest another opinion, especially with an orthopedist. A simple toe fracture should have been pain free long ago.
