University Foot and Ankle Institute is an internationally-recognized leading organization for the treatment of foot and ankle problems.

Rheumatoid forefoot issues are often a very debilitating and painful condition for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The pain is essentially due to early inflammation and delayed cartilage damage, arthritis and dislocation of the toes at the metatarsal heads.
If rheumatoid forefoot deformity is caught early, correction of the toe position and realignment procedures can be used to save the joints and decrease the risk of dislocation and arthritis. If left untreated, rheumatoid forefoot arthritis surgery is usually treated with a removal of the metatarsal heads and realignment of the toes.
Our doctors, surgeons and physical therapists are the very best foot and ankle specialists in California and can help with your rheumatoid arthritis surgery related foot problems. Request an appointment with a doctor at our Los Angeles or other Southern California offices to get treated with your forefoot deformity.
