Arthrosurface: a revolutionary option for great toe joint replacement

Arthrosurface technology, a revolutionary technology for treatment of the great toe

 

Arthrosurface University Foot adn Ankle Institute

How UFAI’s patients avoid major surgery for great toe joint issues with this minimally invasive technique.

 

It used to be that great toe joint pain and arthritis were difficult to treat and had limited options. In most cases of moderate to severe arthritis of the big toe joint, a fusion of the joint was the only option, which meant limited types of shoes and no high heels.

 

The physicians at University Foot and Ankle Institute use the Arthrosurface procedure to relieve big toe pain whenever possible.

How is Arthrosurface different and when is it a better treatment choice for big toe joint conditions?

 

Arthrosurface is a metal partial joint replacement that has a quicker recovery than other great toe surgeries and allows pain relief and motion in the joint. UFAI’s patients are on their feet immediately and in a sandal just 5 days post procedure.

The Arthrosurface procedure replaces the area of missing cartilage at the head of the metatarsal with a titanium implant so the joint alignment and function stay intact and essentially normal. This treatment has proven to be quite successful with cartilage degeneration of the big toe and ankle.  

 

The result: our doctors are able retain your joint’s natural range of motion with this minimally invasive outpatient procedure. With UFAI’s years of experience in the research and use of this procedure, our patients often experience immediate relief.

 

Since the first use of Arthrosurface a decade ago, about 40,000 patients have received joint replacement in their knee, shoulder, foot, ankle and hip. We strongly believe that some of those younger patients could have had a better experience with Arthrosurface’s innovative patient-matched geometries, which allow joints to be restored to their natural curvatures.

 

Our goal is to provide early intervention in the joint where your condition originates and have found that Arthrosurface can be a great way to save more of our patient’s natural bone.

    Dr. B gave me excellent advisement regarding several bruised toe nails on my right foot. His assistant Alex trimmed my toe nails. I was a little scared at first, but he had very good technique and it didn't hurt at all.
