In this procedure, the provider surgically corrects a hallux rigidus deformity without the need for an implant. Hallux rigidus is pain and stiffness due to arthritis, or inflammation in the metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe, or the joint where the head of the metatarsal bone attaches to the first bone of the greater toe. The condition causes pain, stiffness, and restriction of movement. The provider also performs a cheilectomy, or the removal of bone spurs from the joint, along with debridement and capsular release of the metatarsophalangeal joint to free tightened connective tissue and loosen the ball and socket joint.
