Calcaneal Therapeutic Osteotomy

Including Prosthetic Implant Surgical Program
CALCANEAL THERAPEUTIC

A calcaneal osteotomy is a surgical procedure involving a controlled break of the heel (calcaneus) bone, which is then shifted either inward (medially) or outward (laterally) to correct deformities of the foot and ankle. The primary goal of this procedure is to realign the heel bone, thereby influencing how weight-bearing stress is distributed across the foot, ankle, knee, and hip. This can be achieved by either shortening or lengthening the heel bone. Calcaneal osteotomies are often recommended for patients suffering from flatfoot deformity or abnormally high arches, particularly when non-surgical treatments have not yielded significant results.

In some cases, calcaneal osteotomies may be combined with other procedures, such as tendon transfers, to enhance the overall outcome and provide better structural support and function to the affected areas.
