Hallux Valgus Corrections
Hallux valgus, often referred to as a bunion, is a deformity of the big toe that is predominately seen in females1.
Ankle fractures are among the most common intra-articular fractures of weight bearing joints and can include the tibia, fibula or talus2.
First Metatarsal Osteotomy
Metatarsal osteotomies can be performed on patients with moderate to severe hallux valgus associated with metatarsus primus varus.
Lesser Toe Corrections
Lesser toe deformity in adults is frequent and varied3. The aim of the operative treatment is 3-fold: to relieve pain, to restore walking capacity, and to enable normal footware3.
Adult acquired flatfoot, is a debilitating condition with complex pathology defined by the collapse of the medial longitudinal arch of the foot with continued progressive deformity of the foot and ankle5.
Any pathology affecting the midfoot joints such as degenerative arthritis, inflammatory arthritis, or trauma can lead to midfoot arch collapse, planovalgus deformity and medial instability6. Arthrodesis of the arthritic midfoot joints is the mainstay of operative treatments6.
Foot fractures most often involve the metatarsals and toes7. The management of the fracture is determined by the location of the fracture and its effect on balance and weight bearing7.
Calcaneal fractures account for approximately 2% of all fractures and are the most frequent tarsal bone fracture8.
