What is done for a fractured toe?
2 doctor answers • 5 doctors weighed in
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.
