Cheilektomie und Exostosenabtragung

Illustrations 1 & 2 • Cheilectomy and exostoses removal

When wear and tear at the first metatarsal phalangeal joint is not severe, it suffices to remove exostoses and perform a cheilectomy.

This procedure is performed on an out-patient basis and lasts 20 minutes. With a special post-op shoe which offloads the forefeoot, immediate weight-bearing is possible.Versteifung des Großzehengrundgelenkes
