The surgeons at The Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy in Baltimore specialize in providing the best treatment options, including foot fusion, for foot conditions such as arthritis and flat foot.
Foot fusion is a surgical procedure during which two or more bones of the foot are fused together. The foot bones and joints can become painful and cause instability when joints in the hindfoot, midfoot or great toe are damaged because of arthritis, injury or flat foot deformity.
During a foot fusion, the foot is reshaped and realigned and the joints are fused together with screws to maintain the corrected position. Although the foot is somewhat stiff, the up and down movement of the foot is fully maintained. The inward and outward (inversion and eversion) movement is lost.
Patients who have degenerative arthritis in the foot, experienced a foot injury or have a severe flat foot deformity may benefit from a foot fusion to help regain balance and support.
