Osteotomy of the hallux proximal phalanx



Osteotomy of the hallux proximal phalanx



Foot and Ankle Clinics 6(3): 455-471



Osteotomy of the proximal phalanx appears to be used more frequently and with increasing indications. It rarely is indicated as the only surgical procedure and often is combined with a secondary procedure. In hallux valgus surgery, a proximal or distal metatarsal osteotomy often is used, and in hallux rigidus, a cheilectomy usually is added. The advantage of a proximal phalanx osteotomy is that it enables an extra-articular correction, which avoids breaching the metatarsophalangeal joint. This extra-articular correction may prevent joint stiffness and long-term joint changes.
