The Jones procedure is a straightforward operation for correction of the significantly clawed great toe.
It is most often carried out in the patient with underlying neurological disorder and may well be part of a more comprehensive overall foot correction.
It is highly effective in relieving the painful pressure points resulting from a clawed Hallux in the neurological foot but does not produce a normally functioning great toe with gait abnormalities , Hallux Flexus and Hallux limitus being common post op.
