Separate Webbed Toe
Any parents out there that have a child who had or is going to have surgery to separate webbed toes?

When i perform this surgery, i will usually take an elliptical wedge of skin from just below the ankle and place it in the web space between the separated toes. Usually works well.

My toenails seperate from my toes when i put polish on and outward away from my toes.But only where the polish is where it grows out and away & hurts?
Further exam: Cramping can be due to using muscles that you don't normally use. Sometime from doing activity that uses the small muscles in the foot not used in daily activity. It could also be due to dehydration, an imbalance of potassium/sodium, response to prescription medications... As well as many other causes. I would suggest further work-up. ...Read more

I have full webbing between the first three toes on both feet.How much can would it cost to seperate them.?
It depends: This is not a simple answer. Some people actually have only one artery and nerve in the webbing and separation is not a good idea. Sometimes it's just skin so it's relatively straight forward. I would go for a consult with a board certified foot and ankle surgeon. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

If you'd like to go ahead with surgery, plan it for the off-season so you have ample time to heal without the pressure of an upcoming game. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
