Warsaw, IN, January 27, 2014 – An innovative surgical technique to avoid scarring associated with dorsal incisions for hammertoe deformity correction surgery was presented during the New York Podiatric Clinical Conference (NYSPMA), held in New York on January 24-26.  The technique capitalized on the Nextra Hammertoe Implant’s unique adjustable / reversible features embodied in its proprietary RevLock technology.

Dr. Yolanda Ragland, a Podiatric Reconstructive Surgeon who practices in both New York City and Silver Spring, Maryland presented the Inter-Digital Approach with the Nextra implant.  Dr. Ragland is highly regarded for her philosophy of …“providing medically necessary surgery with a cosmetic result.”

Regarding the inter-digital technique, Dr. Ragland commented, “The adjustable 2-piece design of the Nextra Hammertoe Implant allows control and flexibility in adapting to the patient’s anatomy so that placement can be made from the side of the toe to conceal the suture lines post operatively.  These design features make the implant a great fit with my hidden scar technique”.
