Hallux Valgus Print E-mail
This is a malformation of the first metatarsophalangeal bone of the foot with a displacement towards the inside and projection of the first metatarsal base and outward displacement (valgus) of the great toe.

As the shank grows, the joint begins to protrude towards the inside of the foot, resulting friction upon the shoe. Usually shanks are accompanied by turn of the finger as well as a deformation of the second toe called “hammer toe”, and not infrequently coexist and calluses on the shank itself or other toes.

This disease appears quite often to young people and especially women. Besides the malformation of the foot, it causes difficulty in footwear, early fatigue and, often, pain.

Thus, the treatment should target in correcting the malformation and in improving or discharging the discomfort. This is actually achieved only surgically.

The patient may walk normally about 1 month after the operation. Nevertheless, it may take up to 3 months until the foot does not swell at all and the patient wear shoes with normal heels.
