Toe deformity can cause pressure, pain, ulceration and shoe wear problems. The surgical options available to correct deformity commonly, are proximal interphalangeal fusion, metatarsal osteotomy, and amputation as a salvage procedure. Phalangeal osteotomy is described for the valgus 2nd toe. We report 6 patients (9 toes) who underwent osteotomy and fixation of the proximal phalanx in eight cases, and the middle phalanx in one, after the correction of coronal, sagittal and multi- plane toe deformity. The outcome was satisfactory. This paper describes the technique and recommends the procedure which maintains the proximal interphalangeal joint movement.
