In brief: Homework.

There are several ways to go depending on your specific post-operative condition.
Bone grafting, small digital implants or spacers, just to mention a few. You should be aware that the chances of having a normal functioning toe are limited at best. Having multiple opinions is definitely the way to be informed before you commit.
