What is Deformity Correction?

Deformity occurs when the bones or joints of the foot and ankle become misaligned. If severe, patients may experience pain and disability.

Orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons can use several techniques to correct this deformity and return function to the limb. Surgery can include cutting the bones, fusing the joints, repairing ligaments and transferring tendons. In the case of the ankle joint, a total joint replacement can often be used to correct the deformity.
