In brief: Is it infected?

There must be some reason why they want to do this? If there is no infection or something your leaving out there is usually a way to fix a claw toe without amputating.
Ask what your altrnatives are.

In brief: Different options.

Although an amputation is an option, you have other choices.
Consult with you podiatrist and review all your options.
