Forefoot corrections (e.g. hallux valgus)
A misalignment of the toes causes difficulties with gait, deformations and pain in the whole foot. Usually it is triggered by several factors, e.g. a congenital connective tissue weakness and wearing shoes that are too tight or too high. The hallux valgus, also called a bunion, first becomes noticeable due to the development of a splayfoot. This causes the inner edge of the foot to curve, while the large toe tilts in the direction of the middle toes. In case of an extremely advanced deformation, chronic pain and an arthrosis of the toe joint an operation is the method of choice to correct the misalignment. Depending on the severity of the condition, different approaches are possible – we will provide detailed expert advice as soon as a diagnosis has been established. We perform surgical forefoot corrections on an outpatient basis here on site.
