Surgeons often use phalangeal head resection  to correct hammer, claw, and mallet toes . In this procedure, the surgeon removes part of one of the toe bones, the phalangeal head, so that the toe can lie flat. The affected tendons are cut and then reattached to conform to the new, correct toe position.
