Immediate microvascular surgery after the injury, usually saves the lost toe. But if it fails, then the only possible procedure is transplant from a cadaver.. For cosmetic purpose he may opt for a prosthetic toe which looks exactly the same, but will be non- functional... However he has to keep the joints in full range of movement so that scope for a future procedure is there...
