For hammertoe and claw toe, Lawrence DiDomenico, DPM, FACFAS, most often performs a flexor digitorum longus tendon transfer. He cites several advantages to this procedure. With the flexor digitorum longus tendon transfer, there is no bone resection, joint instability, shortening or rotation of the toe, according to Dr. DiDomenico, the Director of the Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgical Fellowship within the Ankle and Foot Care Centers in Ohio, and the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine.
