Serena Williams' Toe Surgery
So it looks as though Serena Williams fell prey to a mishap in a restaurant that ultimately led to her suffering a toe injury (here's the article on ESPN). From what was described, it looks as if she had an Extensor Hallucis Longus laceration from stepping on glass. The Extensor Hallucis Longus is a thin foot muscle that help to extend your big toe. From what the press releases state, she said that her toe started to “droop”. I also continued on to read that she saw a “specialist” and was told that she didn’t necessarily have to get it repaired but that she would always have a “droopy” toe. Serena, as would I, opted to have the laceration repaired. Good choice Serena! Besides, who wants to walk around with a floppy toe when you can walk around with a not so floppy one!
