Hallux Varus Repair

Revision Bunion Surgery: Hallux Varus Repair

This 55 year old female  patient developed a condition called hallux varus after an overcorrected  bunion.  As you can see the big toe deviates away from the foot due to  muscular imbalance, and also become contracted.  This is a severe case  and was present over 10 years before the patient decided to have  corrective surgery.  Dr. Blitz dramatically repaired the big toe,  getting it back into proper position.  Because of the skin and tendon  contractures, Dr. Blitz performed a plastic surgery technique called a  Z-plasty to rotate the skin.  Additionally, Dr. Blitz fused the big toe  joints as a necessary corrective measure for this severe problem.  This  patient can again fit into shoes.
