Correctional Surgery For Brachymetatarsia
Dr.K’s correctional surgery for brachymetatarsia has been hailed as “life-changing” and “transformative” by patients. Brachymetatarsia is when one or more bones in the foot stop growing too early, while the other toes keep growing (mostly around 7-8 years old). For the most part, this is a genetic disorder, but may also be caused by an injury or infection. Brachymetatarsia usually happens to the fourth toe bone of one foot or both feet. This can be painful when you’re walking because the other bones (toes) are holding more weight than usual. Most patients experience discomfort in shoes.
What Is Correctional Surgery For Brachymetatarsia?
To fix this condition, Dr. Khosroabadi (Dr. K) surgically places a small device on the toe bone. This allows a patient to lengthen their toe bone very slowly by turning a screw at home (these adjustments are usually painless).
Another option is when Dr. K cuts the toe bone in half and inserts a graft between the two halves of the toe bone. After a few weeks, the bone graft heals and becomes part of the original toe bone.
