Abstract

Although there are multiple etiologies of hallux varus, it occurs most commonly after the surgical correction of a hallux valgus deformity. While pain with shoe wear is considered to be the primary surgical indication, cosmesis needs to be accounted for as well. For patients with flexible deformities and no evidence of arthrosis at the metatarsophalangeal joint, several soft tissue procedures exist. This technique paper will detail the nature of these procedures that the authors consider to be the most current in application.
