TREATING MISALIGNED FEET
It's Easier Than You Think!
There is a pathologic condition where the ankle bone (talus) slides from its normal alignment on the heel bone (calcaneus). Instantly, the forces that should pass through the back of the heel are shifted to the inner front of the foot. The ankle turns inward and the forefoot turns outward. It’s possible that there are other causes that can be combined with the ankle bone displacement. The majority of people with flat or misaligned feet will never experience any pain or symptoms in their feet. However, they will eventually develop pain or symptoms somewhere in their body. In children this can show up as “growing” pains or shin splints. In adults, it can show up as chronic pain to your knees, hips and back. Once the ankle bone slips from its natural alignment on the heel bone this alters the foundation of the body. The knee twists, the leg is pulled from the hip, the pelvis tilts, and this creates a strain on the back. EOTTS with HyProCure® has been proven scientifically to realign the ankle bone without blocking the natural range of motion. It has been FDA cleared since 2004 and has received clearance in 60 countries around the world. It is used by leading orthopedic and podiatric surgeons. The research has proven this option to be superior to observation and arch supports and less aggressive than traditional reconstructive surgery. It is a safe and reasonable approach to a misaligned ankle bone.

Horsley Foot & Ankle Surgeons
We provide a full range of podiatric medical care
Many podiatric conditions can be treated using the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques that operate with less injury to the body than with open surgery. In general, it is safer than open surgery and allows you to recover faster and heal with less pain and scarring. Minimally invasive surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis in our advanced surgical facility by our experienced podiatric surgeons. Our minimally invasive procedures improve functionality and enhance one’s quality of life. In some complex cases, it is necessary to perform surgery at a hospital. Foot conditions involving damage to underlying tissues are best treated with surgery. Conditions involving a change in the conformation of the foot or toes are also amenable to correction with surgery. Podiatrists are specially trained in the use of a variety of surgical techniques to address these problems, to minimize pain and to prevent the loss of function of any part of the foot. Podiatrists are also familiar with all available treatment options to determine when surgery is necessary, and when it can be avoided.
