Study assesses minimally invasive osteotomy for hallux valgus
from Podiatry Today
For years, surgeons have used minimally invasive techniques for various types of surgery. A recent study in International Orthopaedics says a third-generation minimally invasive technique shows good results for hallux valgus. In a study involving 45 feet of patients with hallux valgus, the authors assessed a third-generation minimally invasive chevron osteotomy procedure that incorporated first- and second-generation techniques plus a distal chevron osteotomy and screw.
