Blog posts of '2014' 'August'

I thought it was just dry skin.

One of the most common problems I see in my private office is athlete's foot. Let me stress the term 'see' because typically, the athlete's foot infection isn't the primary reason for the office call. The primary reason for the visit may be a sprain or fracture, but rarely is it for chronic dry skin of the bottom of the foot.

Treating hallux limitus - fusion vs implant?

When it comes to treating hallux limitus and hallux rigidus, I’ve been an implant guy for years. Implant arthroplasty (Mayo-Keller bunionectomy) is simply what I learned to use in my residency training 30 years ago. In cases of stage 4 hallux limitus (HL), I’ll opt for a great toe implant over a fusion any day. My logic is that it’s simple; what I would want to have? I wouldn't want a stiff toe. I’d like to maintain the natural range of motion of my great toe joint.
