The Weil-Carver Hammertoe Implant is a patented and patient-friendly device that was developed for correcting hammertoe. Hammertoe is an abnormal bend in the toe’s middle joint. The Hammertoe Implant corrects this by being placed inside of the toe. The implant’s barbing prevents it from pistoning, and it is completely internal to avoid the risk of pin track infection.
The implant offers an alternative to the customary method of inserting a long wire into the toe to straighten it. The Hammertoe Implant, which is inserted and then dissolves six to 12 weeks later, has been used all over the world to treat people who suffer from severe hammertoe.
