Hallux valgus surgery radiology fellowship

It is my hope that this text will become a useful resource to students, residents, and practitioners. Deformities of the forefoot are complex, causing varying degrees of pain and suffering. Associate Professor, Department of Surgery, Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine; Podiatry Staff, Department of Podiatric Surgery, Mt. Such deformities also contribute to overall functional disability in many patients suffering from the variety of deformities affecting the foot. Adjunct Clinical Faculty, Department of Surgery, Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio Domenick A. The text would not be complete without addressing other deformities associated with hallux valgus that accompany the painful forefoot. Hallux Valgus and Forefoot Surgery brings together a group of physicians interested in the care of the foot who unselfishly share their experience, expertise, and knowledge with those of similar interest. They include soft tissue procedures, phalangeal, distal, and proximal metatarsal osteotomy, and procedures involving the cuneiform.

An international perspective is added to demonstrate the similarity and diversity of the approaches to the management of hallux valgus. Some repetition of material may occur in several of the chapters; this was done to allow for completeness of presentation of the material in the individual chapters and to reinforce some of the radiographic, biomechanical, and other principles relative to the specific procedures described. Separate chapters deal with management of diabetic and rheumatoid patients. This is especially true of older patients for whom mobility equates with independence. This book addresses the clinical aspects of deformity of the forefoot, focusing primarily on hallux valgus.

These initial chapters are then followed by a series of chapters on procedures for the management of hallux valgus; these chapters address criteria for procedure selection based on clinical, radiographic, and biomechanical foundations.
