Big Toe Joint Arthritis

Do you have pain in your big toe joint? Do you have trouble bending your big toe? Maybe you are beginning to notice a bump on the top of the big toe joint? These are all symptoms of big toe joint osteoarthritis, also called Hallux Limitus or hallux rigidus. There are many conservative treatments including stiff soled shoes, orthotics, and steroid injections which can help relieve joint pain. Sometimes a joint clean up procedure, called a cheilectomy can be effective. Fusion of the big toe joint is a very reliable and durable procedure for severe hallux rigidus.

Below is an example of a patient with severe hallux rigidus who underwent a big toe joint fusion. The patient is doing well after surgery and able to walk without pain.

If your big toe joint is giving you trouble, please give us a call today!
