Hallux Rigidus / Big Toe Arthritis: Before & After Pictures

In this video we discuss Big Toe Arthritis and the advanced treatment options available to our patients.

Our nationally recognized physicians are at the forefront of the treatment for Hallux Limiuts (Arthritis of the Great Toe Joint).  Our doctors helped develop the leading implant for great toe arthritis and teach surgeons across the country how to perform this procedure.

 

If joint fusion is necessary, rest assure, our success rate is over 99%. This is in part to the innovative technique that was developed with the help of UFAI physicians. This allows for weight to be placed immediately on the foot versus the norm of 6-8 weeks! Read more option our hallux limitus care and treatment options here.
