Foot surgery

Foot surgery is a very demanding specialization, so it is worth using the help of professionals such as our doctors.

Experienced foot surgeon

The human foot consists of 26 bones, 33 joints and 100 muscles. This is the most complicated part of the musculoskeletal system, and foot surgery itself is a highly specialized field of orthopedics and traumatology. Any surgical intervention should be performed only by an experienced foot surgeon.

The foot must support the entire human body, hence changes within it often occur, either through injuries or degeneration caused, for example, by improper footwear. That is why there are often changes in the foot area that cause pain, problems with movement or choosing the right footwear.

Foot surgery – methods of treatment:

Ankle arthroscopy

This treatment allows:

  • Removal of all unnecessary elements, e.g. pieces of bone after fractures,
  • Removal of damaged cartilage fragments,
  • Removal of bone lesions or growths
  • Treatment of microfractures
  • Removal of overgrown synovium,
  • Control of the articular surface during the treatment of joint fractures,
  • Replenishment of cysts inside the talus and, as a last resort, stiffening of the joints.
Cartilage implant insertion (CARTIVA)

It is a modern metatarsophalangeal joint implant designed to replace the damaged cartilage surface of the joint. Cartiva is made of the same material as contact lenses. Cartiva perfectly reproduces the natural properties of cartilage. It is implanted in the case of post-traumatic changes, in RA and in the advanced stage of a rigid toe (hallux rigidus).

Repair operations

Bone cutting and rejoining procedures. They are most often used when the foot has healed badly after a fracture. With the help of special screws, the anatomical position of the foot and ankle is maintained.
