Diagnosed today with a dislocated big toe and 2 large bone cysts. Told I need surgery.. How is the surgery done? What's the recovery process?
Dislocated toe: It seems like to have 2 separate conditions. A dislocated toe would simply be reduced to the anatomical position and possibly held in place with a wire or screw until it completely heals. This typically would be anywhere from 6-8 weeks. Cysts in the bone may be due to many causes and would depend on the type of cyst as well as location.See 1 more doctor answer

Healed?: I suspect if you still can't bear weight that the bones have not healed or have shifted in a way that causes pain. You need to see your orthopaedic surgeon for x-rays and an evaluation. Make sure they review your injury and the current state o healing with you.See 2 more doctor answers
It is simple: It is a very simple procedure. If it is for hammertoe correction, it is relatively quick surgery may 15-20 minutes. You will be able to walk after the surgery but this may lead to a lot of swelling and healing could take longer. It will take about a month to return back to normal shoes.See 1 more doctor answer
Different types.: If you catch hammertoes in the early stages, a small, in-office procedure to release one of the tendons will often allow the toe to lie straight again. If the toe deformity has become rigid, the surgery is more involved. It's an outpatient procedure in an operating room, and can involve bone cuts, pins, screws, or other implants. Without surgery, your best bet is padding to reduce your discomfort.See 3 more doctor answers
Hammertoe repair: An incision is made overlying the contracted joint. The soft tissue attachments are released exposing the joint. The joint may be left separated or fusion of the ends may be attempted. For fusion, the cartilaginous ends of the bone are removed and the ends are approximated and stabilized via a wire, screw, pin, or implant. The contracted tendons may need to be cut or lengthened.See 1 more doctor answer
Quick recovery: Typically, surgery for a curly toe deformity is followed by immediate weightbearing in a protective shoe. Expect some swelling in the toe for approximately 6 weeks. Your surgeon may also want you to buddy tape the toe after surgery.See 1 more doctor answer

Post-op pain is controlled with elevation and a prescription medication from your surgeon.See 4 more doctor answers
