Hallux Valgus treatments in Marbella on the Costa del Sol
The Foot and Sports Clinic Marbella offers foot and ankle surgery and treatments using the latest surgical techniques and the most modern orthotic devices.
A great part of pain caused by forefoot deformities like the Hallux Valgus can be positively influenced, or even completely treated, with the help of custom made insoles, change of foot wear and correct physiotherapy. But from a certain point on, especially when the lesser toes are already involved into the process of deformity, only surgery can offer a definite solution.
Exclusively in the forefoot area over 150 surgical techniques are described. This shows the importance and high frequency of this deformity in the population.
In modern foot surgery we prefer surgical procedures that maintain the existing joints if possible and due to the unlimited variety of forefoot deformities every patient has to be treated with an “a la carte surgery” to reconstruct his individual forefoot problem. Preferred implant material is titanium, in the FSC Marbella we also have good experience with bioresorbable implants.
Postsurgical treatment obviously depends on the performed surgical procedures, but in general the bone healing process takes 6 weeks. During this period we allow our patients already partial weight bearing with the help of special shoes or orthotics. In our clinic we do not apply plaster any more, since we work with the latest advanced material that replaces it.
Usually after 6 weeks normal gait with full weight bearing in comfortable shoes is allowed and full sports activities can be performed 3 months after surgery.
