Toronto podiatrist relates that Jon Jones' painful dislocated toe is healing on schedule

According to www.bleacherreport.com, UFC light heavy weight champ Jon Jones is on his road to recovery after a gruesome injury to his great toe. In his last fight, he jammed the big toe and dislocated it. The nature of the injury was such that, had the fight not ended with a technical knockout in Jone's favour, he probably would not have been allowed to continue the fight, even though he was winning.
Apparently, Jones had surgery performed by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Klapper. It should take approximately 6-8 weeks for the toe to heal. The toe was dislocated, not broken.
Jones reported that the alignment was good, the skin was healing and there was no infection. He is unable to do heavy training at this point but he is planning to attend a seminar in Russia.

In my Toronto podiatry office, I treat painful toes due to Hammertoes Corns and Bone Spurs and Ingrown Toenails using Minimally Invasive techniques. The work can be done in my Toronto podiatry clinic under local anesthetic.
