Hallus Valgus

Hallux valgus correction

Hallux valgus is a common foot deformity. Wrong footwear, heredity, or specific foot shapes can be the cause.

Surgery is required to prevent major deformities as soon as our patients complain of pain. Osteotomies (surgical fractures) are used to restore the correct position of the metatarsal bones and phalanges. We are also able to reduce pain and shorten hospital stays using the latest percutaneous techniques.

Pain when walking/standing

Do you have pain right at the bottom of your toe when you walk or stand? We know how to help you. Corns (calluses) on the sole of the toe or thickening of the collateral nerve on the toe are often the cause. If these come back after being removed, this may indicate an underlying bone problem. We try to compensate for the bone or nerve problem with appropriate footwear or specially designed insoles to alleviate these symptoms. If these measures are of no help, then we will resort to surgery to correct the change in the bone.

Arthroscopic treatment of ankle sprain

Between 20 and 40 percent of all people who have sprained their ankle suffer from a chronic problem. Instability and pain are the most common causes. They can limit your daily activities or prevent you from participating in sports. In order to eliminate these complaints, we treat our patients with the help of arthroscopy. Ligamentoplasty is performed through an extra 2 cm skin incision in cases of ligament instability.

By inserting a video camera into the ankle, we can see the extent of the problem in real-time and confirm or rule out stability visually. Just four weeks after this procedure, patients begin rehabilitation treatment and notice a significant difference.

Diabetic foot / Charcot's foot

The diabetic foot encompasses all of the symptoms experienced by diabetics caused by reduced sensation in the plantar surface.

As a result of the neuropathy, many of the regulatory processes in the foot area are adversely affected and local, uncontrollable hyperemia occurs on the bones of the foot. This leads to pathological changes in the metabolism of the tarsal bone (decalcification) and, in the worst cases, to deformity of the foot (Charcot’s foot). The most common deformity is the collapse of the midfoot arch (the most common site of origin). This deformity is known as a rocker-bottom foot.

The best therapy for diabetics is prophylaxis through the use of appropriate footwear with similar characteristics. Acute Charcot foot can be difficult to treat and may require several months of conservative treatment with shoe therapy or surgery for more complex cases.

Achilles tendon tendinitis/heel pain

Perhaps the best-known tendon in the human body is the Achilles tendon. It can be subject to inflammation and has been associated with a number of conditions. A complete examination is essential to make an accurate diagnosis. Overuse, shortening of the tendon or muscle, or improper footwear can all cause inflammation. After examining the foot, we can determine the best type of physiotherapy to use and, in most cases, rehabilitate it to get better. However, it is quite possible for Achilles tendinitis to last up to six months even with proper treatment.

Plantar fasciitis/heel spur

We now know that plantar fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the fascia at the base of the heel. A heel spur is usually associated with this chronic inflammation. Even with the first steps of the day and during warm-up, you will experience heel pain that comes back after prolonged sitting. The first line of treatment for this pain is anti-inflammatory medication, stretching, and rehabilitation. Sometimes, after examining the patient, we prescribe made-to-measure insoles to relieve the possible calcaneal spur. As a result, we achieve very good results, which reduce the pain of our Patients and patients alleviate.

Foot and ankle osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that refers to the progressive wear and tear of the joints. The following changes result from the progressive loss of joint cartilage:

  • The natural buffer function of healthy cartilage is lost
  • The bones are put under more strain
  • Movements become painful
  • Joints stiffen

Osteoarthritis can affect both younger and older people. The development of osteoarthritis is favored, for example, by poorly trained muscles combined with excess weight.

Unfortunately, once cartilage has been destroyed, it cannot be rebuilt. The best way to treat this is to get diagnosed early and stop the degeneration.
