Smith & Nephew scores a HAT-TRICK with its entry into the high-growth hammer toe repair market

"Although treating lesser toe deformities is extremely common, getting consistently predictable outcomes has eluded surgeons worldwide," explains orthopaedic surgeon Charles Saltzman, MD, chairman of the system's scientific advisory board. "Current standards of treatment are known to have unacceptably high complication rates."

The HAT-TRICK system is a new three-part approach designed to not only treat the deformity, but also the underlying problem that led to the deformity in the first place."

Editor's notes: The metatarsophalangeal joint connects the metatarsal bones of the foot and the proximal bones (proximal phalanges) of the toes – similar to the area of the hand called the knuckles.
