Flat Foot Correction


This is commonly done in 50 and 60 year old woman with tendon disease. This sees progressive flat foot deformity with pain and swelling on the inside of the ankle. The reconstructive surgery means either bone osteotomy or hind foot fusion in combination with tendon-transfer and ligament repair surgery. The recovery of this procedure is 3 months plus and requires 2 months of immobilisation in a splint or a boot.
