Flat Foot Surgery

February 26, 2014

Flat feet (pes planus) sometimes causes pain due to stretching of ligaments & tendons or bony impingement due to the abnormal structure of the foot. If left unaddressed, some cases progress to arthritis of the midfoot and ankle joints.

Correction of this deformity may involve flat foot surgery where there are tendon transfers or bony procedures which are decided based on an individualised clinical assessment.
