Minimal Incision for Correction of Flatfoot (Hyperpronation)
Flatfoot (hyperpronation and flattening-out of the longitudinal arch), also known as pes planus or pes planovalgus, is a common deformity among children and adults. Another cause of flatfoot can be attributed to posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. Conservative treatments to relieve pain from the foot and leg associated with flatfoot include orthotics, stretching exercises, and medication (e.g., non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Corticosteroid injections continue to be controversial. These methods may fail to provide relief and do not provide any correction at the point of contact.
