Hammertoe and Claw Toe Correction - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
The middle joint found in eight of your toes is called the proximal interphalangeal or PIP joint. Hammertoe and claw toe are conditions where one or more of your toes stay in an abnormally bent position. If you have a hammertoe, the PIP joint is bent so that your toe looks like a hammer. If you have a claw toe, the joint where your foot and toe meet is bent upward while the PIP joint is bent downward. This makes your toe look like a claw. If non-surgical treatments don't work, your healthcare provider may advise you to have a surgical procedure, such as PIP arthroplasty and fusion, to straighten your toe. To start the procedure, your surgeon will make an incision on the top of your toe. Ligaments and tendons over toe bones may be cut to expose the joint. Next, the ends of the two bones will be removed. This allows more room for the toe to relax and straighten. Sometimes, a pin or other fixation device will be inserted through the bones to keep your toe straight while it heals. At the end of the procedure, the incision will be closed with sutures. Your surgeon may also place your toe in a cast or a splint while it heals. As the joint heals, scar tissue will form fussing the two bones together. If a pin is used, it will be removed in your doctor's office after a few weeks. To find out more about hammertoe or claw toe procedures, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
