The typical resectional arthroplasty that is performed is known as a Keller procedure. It is performed when morbidity might be increased with the more aggressive osteotomy that would otherwise be selected. The procedure includes resection of the base of the proximal phalanx with reapproximation of the abductor and adductor tendon groups. The technique is inherently unstable and should be used judiciously. [ 88 , 89 ] The postoperative course includes limited-to-full weightbearing in a surgical shoe immediately after the procedure.

What is evident is that the multifidus is a key component in the deep stabilization of the spine and is particularly susceptible to inhibition and atrophy following back injury. It is also evident from the research that the multifidus does not naturally recover from this post-injury inhibition and subsequent atrophy. Researchers are striving to find the right combinations of exercises to reverse this downward spiral.

There may be a significant deformity of the first MTP joint, producing a rather large, obvious bunion. The main complaint may be the dislocated second toe that is sitting on top of the great toe, or the large callus beneath the second metatarsal head as a result of a transfer lesion due to instability of the first MTP joint.

Something else that concerns me is the long term effects this procedure will have on the facets. Medial branch ablation effectively creates a Charcot joint of the facets. Charcot joint is the term given to a joint that has a neuroarthopathy that renders it devoid of sensation. The name Charcot&rsquo s joint was given by the French neurologist Jean-Marie Charcot who noted a pattern of joint destruction in patients with the loss of joint sensation. In a Charcot joint the patient is unable to perceive the pain of joint damage so they will engage in joint damaging activities and not even know it. Currently there are no randomized control studies we can look to that address the long term effects of spinal facet joint anesthesia.
The potential for complications is great enough that surgery should not be considered for cosmetic reasons alone [ 65 ].
Just a question, from the discussion, did the surgeon use screw to straighten your first toe? I have the op 9 months ago and with 8 titanium screws fixed in the first toe. I have been back to normal work but sometime my leg still pain especially at the ankle area and knee. Any idea or is it more on arthritis? I am 56. My next appt with the surgeon is 78 March. Glad to gain any experience from you.
It is natural to associate the site of pain as the source of pain. If the pain is over the sacroiliac joint, it is a sacroiliac problem. If there is lateral thigh pain, it is probably a tensor fascia lata (TFL) syndrome. While pain often originates at the site of pain, other times pain is referred from another site: it is where it isn&rsquo t. This is the case with thoracolumbar junction syndrome. This malady can refer pain to the inguinal area, lateral thigh, and posterior pelvis (sacroiliac or gluteal region).
An adequate physical examination to determine the etiology and specific deformity is necessary for treatment planning. Medical therapy can be used to address the etiology, but it cannot change the irreversible cartilage, bony, and soft-tissue adaptations of the deformity. Therefore, most medical therapies are aimed at assuaging symptoms.
If you are either bow-legged or knock-kneed, you are at higher risk for osteoarthritis, meaning you may develop knee pain and function problems later in life. It s important to keep your weight within a normal range, as obesity can make knee problems worse. It is the factor that you can have some control over without surgery.
