"Hallux Valgus"

OA Priv. Doz. Dr. Reinhard Schuh

Specialist for foot & ankle joint

The big toe is also called Hallux. If it begins to deviate in the direction of the second toe, a hallux valgus deformity develops. The deviation causes a bony protrusion to develop on the inside of the metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe, which can lead to irritation in the shoe. This protrusion is called pseudoexostosis. Women are more often affected by this disease than men and some of it can be inherited. Another cause for the occurrence of deformity is the wearing of shoes that are too tight.

 

Once the deformity has formed, it increases steadily. This can lead to malpositions in the area of the small toes (e.g. hammer toes). As normal rolling over the big toe is no longer possible due to the malpositioning, pain in the metatarsal area caused by overstrain can also occur. The extent of the pain does not depend directly on the size of the deformity, but primarily on the irritation caused by the footwear.

 

There are only two treatment options for hallux valgus malposition: 1. you change the width of the footwear; 2. you change the shape of the foot. If the complaints are so severe that the change of the footwear cannot contribute to a significant improvement, an operative correction of the deformity must be considered. In most procedures, the first metatarsal bone is severed (osteotomy) and moved so that the toe is straight again. In addition, bone protrusions are removed and shortened soft tissues on the inside of the metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe are loosened.

 

The choice of the procedure depends on the extent of the deformity and concomitant diseases.

Kompetenz gepaart mit Einfühlvermögen!

18.11.2016: Ich wurde von meinem Orthopäden der auf Hüfte/Knie spezialisiert ist zu Herrn Doz.Dr. Schuh verwiesen, da er der Spezialist in Sachen FUSS ist. Ich bin vollkommen zufrieden mit der Beratung, Aufklärung und den Therapievorschlägen. Herr Schuh erklärt dem Patienten in aller Ruhe die Sachlage, untersucht gewissenhaft den Fuß und fordert einen mehrmals auf Fragen zu stellen bzw man hat das Gefühl es liegt ihm viel daran einen aufgeklärten Patienten zu haben. ...
