WHAT DO WE TREAT?

Both congenital and acquired foot diseases create great discomfort in everyday life. MedinUA clinic guarantees you to get rid of these problems and live fully;)

Bunion

Bunion is a common type of foot deformity. The pathology is easily recognized externally, manifesting by a "protruding" bone at the base of the big toe. Most often, the disease arises to women misusing uncomfortable shoes. The problem causes considerable discomfort: calluses, tired feet, pain. When the disease reaches a critical stage, it is quite difficult to get along surgical intervention.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF DISEASE

Factors affecting the bunion progression:

  • heredity;
  • hormonal disorders;
  • weakened ligaments;
  • the omission of the longitudinal and transverse foot arches;
  • bone damage due to age-related changes;
  • genetic predisposition.

The most common cause of the onset of the disease emergence is an excessive load on the feet. This may be wearing high-heeled shoes or wastes of profession (for example, deformation is observed among many dancers). Generally, women are more likely to suffer from a bunion, since men's feet bundles are much stronger.

The disease begins to manifest itself by painful sensations while walking. First, pains appear only when moving, but then it disturbs you even when sitting. The discomfort level depends on the disease stage.

Another symptom of Bunion is the appearance of both edema and joint enlargement at the base of the big toe. This occurs due to the fact the cartilage is thinning, and growths are forming. If only the big toe cartilage is deformed firstly, it can spread to the rest.

SURGIAL TREATMENT OF BUNION

The most effective disease treatment is a surgery. In modern clinics, two types of surgical interventions are used: mini-invasive and reconstructive. Surgeons prefer to remove bone growth in a mini-invasive way. This is an innovative technique, used in the early stages of the disease. That is why patients are advised to consult a doctor in time.

The mini-invasive bunion operation implies minimal impact on external tissues. The surgeon makes only 2 small punctures of 3-4 mm to input microtools. The whole procedure is carried out under x-ray control. The result of operation is pain elimination and restoration of the normal bone position.

If the disease is of neglected stage, reconstructive surgery is necessary. During the procedure, an incision of 2-4 cm long is made to return the bone to the correct position. Usually in such situations, special metal clamps are installed.

HAMMER TOE

Hammer toe is a pathology, characterizing by phalanges curvature. Fingers are bent in such a way they resemble a hammer. Only one finger is predominantly deformed, but there are cases of several curvature at once. Violation causes both aesthetic and physical discomfort. The most effective method of dealing with a disease it is a surgery.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF HAMMER TOE

The pathology can be recognized by the following features:

  • tendons stretched in such a way that it is difficult to straighten a toe;
  • finger / fingernail are looking down;
  • the formation of corns;
  • shoes become uncomfortable, beginnig to rub;
  • a bulging bone appears at the base of the thumb;
  • arch of the foot is omitted;
  • pain in the foot, increased during walking;
  • dislocations of the metatarsophalangeal joints;
  • movement disorders, lameness.

If you look at the photo with the deformation at different stages, you will notice the pathology primarily affects the second finger. If no action is taken, the disease will spread to other Hammer-shaped deformity is often a consequence of the flat foot development. Also, pathology arises as a result of alcoholism or severe foot diseases (arthritis or bunion (Hallux Valgus)). Also, the causes of hammer deformation are:

  • diabetes;
  • polio;
  • cerebral paralysis;
  • foot injury;
  • heredity;
  • excess weight;
  • psoriasis;
  • sclerosis;
  • second toe being too long;
  • high foot arch;
  • constant wearing of uncomfortable shoes.

SURGICAL TREATMENT OF HAMMER TOE

If the pathological process is in the initial stage, doctors apply conservative methods of treatment: wearing special shoes, the use of orthopedic devices, massage, medicines. But if the deformity of the toes has become fixed, these methods will not lead to the desired result. In such cases, surgery is required to straighten the toes.

The main types of surgery:

  • Symptomatic - the surgeon removes part of the growth to return the finger to its normal position. The rehabilitation period takes a short time. However, the result of such an operation is often temporary, rather aesthetic (relapse may occur).
  • Radical - intervention is aimed at correcting the entire foot (arch and flat feet correction). This is a complex procedure that requires different types of manipulations. The surgeon adjusts the muscle tissue, tendons and joints. However, the effectiveness of such treatment is extremely high.

The operation is carried out minimally invasive or open method, depending on the situation. The surgeon uses local or conductive anesthesia.

Flat foot can lead to arthritis, arthrosis, spinal curvature. If drug treatment or therapy does not lead to the desired result, you should contact a orthopedic surgeon.

REASONS AND SYMPTOMS OF FLAT FooT

The disease develops gradually, often imperceptible to human. The first signs of disease progression are discomfort in the feet while walking. The legs get tired faster, fatigue is felt at the end of the day, swelling appears. Feet fatigue passes only after a massage or a long rest.

Flat feet of adults and children can be recognized by the shoe: it wears out faster, especially inside. We have to buy larger shoes, as the foot gradually increases. Also, the disease is easily identified by the footprint - less than half the width of the foot should be printed on the sheet.

The disease can be congenital or acquired. Generally, the main causes of flat feet are identified by:

  • regular excessive load on the legs;
  • heredity;
  • excess weight;
  • constant wearing of uncomfortable shoes (including heels);
  • presence of diseases such as rickets, poliomyelitis or diabetes mellitus;
  • pregnancy;
  • psychosomatic disease.

Men and women are most susceptible to flat feet, especially those who are often standing. The risk group also includes the elderly, as the ligaments weaken with age.

ANKLE ARTHROSIS

Ankle Arthrosis is a disease, leading to articular cartilage deformation. Pathological processes lead to changes in joint structure and shape, and as a result - an infraction of its functioning. If you suffer from certain program - immediately contact the MedinUa clinic. A professional doctor of the highest category will consult you, determine the extent of the disease and prescribe all the necessary treatment.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF DISEASE

The list of the main arthrosis causes include:

  • heredity, genetic predisposition;
  • bone ischemia;
  • excessive exercise impact on the joint;
  • dysplasia;
  • injuries in the joint area (fractures, dislocations, etc.);
  • static violation.

Disease of the 1st stage almost does not manifest itself. The first signs are leg fatigue, a feeling of heaviness. It is often difficult to diagnose it at this stage. Arthrosis of the 2nd stage appears in joint pain, especially after heavy leg loads. Then the joint becomes less mobile, it is even difficult to climb stairs, a characteristic crunch in the joint is felt. In case of arthrosis of stage 3, the change in the shape of the joint is noticeable to the naked eye, swelling is formed. Grade 4 is the loss of foot capacity and disabilit.

ANKLE ARTHROSIS TREATMENT

If the disease can be diagnosed in the early stages, conservative methods are used for treatment. First of all, the doctor prescribes medications aimed at relieving both pain and inflammation. Also complex therapy is used: massage, physical education, physiotherapy,

In the later stages of the pathology development, conservative methods are ineffective. Prompt intervention is necessary. Depending on the stage of the disease and the presence of arthrosis complications, different types of operations are performed: arthroscopy, arthrodesis or endoprosthetics. The first type of intervention is usually used in the second stage of the disease. During the procedure, the surgeon removes fragments of cartilage with a special tool - arthroscope. Such an operation effectively eliminates the problem for at least several years without possible relapses.

If the reaches the extreme stage, arthrodesis is performed - this is the complete joint removal, with further foot boness and lower leg plicing. After the operation, the mobility of the limb returns, but the leg does not function at full strength. Endoprosthetics is the replacement of a damaged joint with an artificial prosthesis. This is the most effective method of dealing with arthrosis of the ankle joint in the neglected stage. When installing a high-quality endoprosthesis, the patient's leg functions at full strength for 20–25 years. Prostheses from the best manufacturers, meeting international standards are applied in our clinic.

Subtalar joint is a chronic disease characterized by changes in the articular cartilage structure. If you are looking for a reliable treatment for osteoarthritis, contact your MedinUa clinic for help. We apply innovative methods of both surgical and conservative treatment, constantly tested in practice.

DISEASE CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS

Generally, deforming arthrosis of the subtalar joint results from various injuries: a fracture in the foot back or a dislocation. This problem is often affects sportsmen or ballerinas. Thus, the most common causes of the disease are

  • posttraumatic arthrosis;
  • excessive exercise;
  • excess weight;
  • inflammatory processes;
  • congenital abnormalities.

The first symptom of the disease is the pain in the back of the foot. Pain syndrome especially increases during walking. Soon, the patient manifests signs such as a change in gait, a feeling of “clicking” during movement. With the disease progression, joints become increasingly fragile, swelling, rubbing up sunase progression. This leads to the gradual joint destruction and the complete loss of the support leg function

SUBTALAR JOINT ARTHROSIS Treatment

It is difficult to diagnose the disease in the early stages with the help of external examination. An x-ray and MRI are required. If ram-heel joint arthrosis has just begun to develop, conservative treatment methods are used. Usually there are drugs, physiotherapy, massage, physical education. If therapy does not bring proper results, surgical intervention is prescribed.

The type of operation is chosen depending on the stage of the disease. The most common type of intervention is arthrodesis. This is an operation involving locking the joint. According to the results of the procedure, surgeons achieve the following results: resumption of normal blood circulation, elimination of deformity and pain.

Over time, seals appear on the foot, increasing in size. In the third stage of the disease, changes in the joints are already visible to the naked eye. The leg becomes inactive, sharp pains are felt. The consequences of these processes are destruction of the joints, subtotal disability.

ARTHROSIS OF THE SMALL FooT JOINTS TREATMENT

The main task of treatment is to stop the process of joints destruction. In the early stages, doctors use conservative methods: physiotherapy, medication, gymnastics. Great importance is the proper nutrition and avoidance of excessive physical exertion. However, if there are dangerous stages of arthrosis we can not do without surgical intervention.

HAGLUND'S DEFORMATION

Haglund deformity (osteophyte) is the formation of bone growth in the back of the heel. Pathology arises from the inflammatory process that occurs as a result of the constant Achilles tendon friction. This process leads to the appearance of pathological cartilage. The change is clearly visible suing X-ray examination.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF HAGLUND'S DEFORMATION

The main causes of osteophyte calcaneus include:

  • congenital high foot arch, which causes increased friction of the Achilles tendon.
  • reduced Achilles tendon elasticity;
  • other foot deformities (varus, flat-valgus).

There can be no pain in this type of deformation. The main symptom of the disease is the formation of a characteristic bump in the back of the heel. Sometimes pathology is accompanied by both edema and inflammation of the mucous membrane of the sac and tendon sheath. In this case, there is pain when walking or even when sitting. The disease is observed in both adults and children. Anger may appear on one or both legs.

METHODS OF TREATMENT OF HAGLUND'S DEFORMATION

To relieve pain and to eliminate the disease at an early stage, conservative treatment methods are used:

  • wearing orthopedic shoes with a soft back or without it at all;
  • anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs;
  • different methods of physiotherapy;
  • wearing ankle orthosis.

If the listed methods do not bring results, surgical treatment is recommended. The main purpose of the operation is to remove the pathological growth. Conductive or local anesthesia is used during the procedure. The operation can take place in two ways:

  • An open method — the surgeon makes a 4-5 cm incision to remove growths. The Achilles tendon is removed, and the pathological cartilage is removed by a medical saw. The doctor puts stitches and a sterile bandage.
  • Minimally invasive method - the operation is performed using endoscopic instruments through a small incision (up to 5 mm). The method of surgical intervention depends on many factors: the degree of pathology development, the patient's condition, and concomitant diseases.

Usually, it is necessary to wear an orthosis in order to reduce the load on the foot after the operation. In the first week you can move independently, sometimes with the help of crutches. In the postoperative period, regular dressings, the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, and physiotherapeutic procedures are necessary. Full rehabilitation usually lasts 4-6 weeks. However, with some types of intervention, recovery takes 2-3 months.

VARUS FOOT DEFORMITY

Varus foot deformity is a legs curvature, in which feet “look” at each other, forming an O-shape of legs. Deformation adversely affects not only the feet, but also the knees. The disease leads to meniscus compression. Severe pathology leads to the femur displacement of the. You should immediately consult a doctor at the first signs of the disease.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF VARUS FOOT DEFORMITY

The main causes of varus foot deformity:

  • heredity;
  • metabolic disease;
  • regular uncomfortable shoes wearing;
  • uneven load on the foot;
  • skeletal system diseases;
  • injuries;
  • endocrine system diseases;
  • severe body weakening.
  • The disease often affects children and even newborns, characterized by the arch curvature and the foot axis. Pathology is like a club foot, but there are differences between them. Clubfoot is an exclusively congenital disease, while varus deformity is formed in the first years of life or in adults.

    The pathological process is slow, it is difficult to recognize it at the initial stage. It starts with discomfort during walking, difficulties with shoes selection. Then there is a foot pain. After that the pathology becomes visually noticeable: fingers are bent, feet turn to each other. In childhood, the deformation can be recognized when the child starts to run badly, jumping and walking awkwardly, often falling.

    METHODS OF VARUS FOOT DEFORMITY TREATMENT

    A complex of conservative methods is used to treat a disease:

    • foot and back massage;
    • physiotherapy;
    • the use of orthopedic correctors;
    • wearing both orthopedic shoes and insoles.

    If conservative methods are ineffective, experts recommend using surgical treatment. The method of intervention is determined by the surgeon, based on the severity of the pathology, the presence of complications, the patient's age and associated diseases. Perhaps the use of low-impact techniques is needed.

    After a competent intervention, the postoperative period is only a few days. Then the patient is prescribed a course of rehabilitation for full recovery (massage, gymnastics, physiotherapy, orthopedic shoes, diet).

    TREATMENT OF VARUS FOOT DEFORMITY IN THE MEDINUA CLINIC

PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Plantar fasciitis is a disease when there is an inflammatory process in the plantar fascia. Inflammation occurs where the fascia attaches to the calcaneus. This is the most common cause of pain in the heel. When salts are piled up in the affected area, a bone growth (the so-called heel spur) is formed. Treatment of the disease is possible both by conservative and surgical methods.

PLANTAR FACCTION CAUSES

Plantar fasciitis occurs due to following reasons:

  • a large load on foot;
  • excess weight;
  • regular long distance running;
  • wearing uncomfortable shoes;
  • incorrect walking (wrong load distribution on the foot);
  • spinal injury;
  • passive lifestyle;
  • flat foot.

The disease often affects athletes, especially runners (due to the increased load on the feet). Women are usually at risk, since men have stronger foot ligaments.

SYMPTOMS OF THE DISEASE

The main symptom of the disease is acute heel pain. It increases with walking, causing a considerable discomfort. Usually pain syndrome is pronounced in the morning, as soon as the patient gets out of bed. During the day, the pain subsides, but then resumes in the evening. If you increase the load on the foot, the pain will noticeably increase. Sometimes the pain becomes so strong that you want to walk on toes, without stepping on heel.

SURGICAL TREATMENT OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS

In the early stages of the disease, specialists apply a number of conservative procedures: physiotherapy, massage, physical therapy, and medication. But if these methods of treatment do not show significant results or the disease has reached a severe stage, surgical treatment is used.

During operation heel spurs and relieve constricted nerves are removed. The procedure is performed using both local anesthesia and endoscopic instruments. The post-rehabilitation period with open surgery includes 2-3 weeks of leg immobilization. But if an innovative min. invasive method is used, long-term immobilization is not required. The patient should wear orthopedic shoes. After 3-4 weeks you can return to physical activity and gradually increase the load on the leg.

TREATMENT OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS IN MEDINUA CLINIC

The Department of Foot Surgery at the MedinUa Clinic applies effective methods for the heel spurs treatment. The direction is headed by an experienced orthopedic and traumatologist Oleg Loskutov.

+Ankle arthrosis

Ankle Arthrosis is a disease, leading to articular cartilage deformation. Pathological processes lead to changes in joint structure and shape, and as a result - an infraction of its functioning. If you suffer from certain program - immediately contact the MedinUa clinic. A professional doctor of the highest category will consult you, determine the extent of the disease and prescribe all the necessary treatment.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF DISEASE

The list of the main arthrosis causes include:

  • heredity, genetic predisposition;
  • bone ischemia;
  • excessive exercise impact on the joint;
  • dysplasia;
  • injuries in the joint area (fractures, dislocations, etc.);
  • static violation.

Disease of the 1st stage almost does not manifest itself. The first signs are leg fatigue, a feeling of heaviness. It is often difficult to diagnose it at this stage. Arthrosis of the 2nd stage appears in joint pain, especially after heavy leg loads. Then the joint becomes less mobile, it is even difficult to climb stairs, a characteristic crunch in the joint is felt. In case of arthrosis of stage 3, the change in the shape of the joint is noticeable to the naked eye, swelling is formed. Grade 4 is the loss of foot capacity and disabilit.

ANKLE ARTHROSIS TREATMENT

If the disease can be diagnosed in the early stages, conservative methods are used for treatment. First of all, the doctor prescribes medications aimed at relieving both pain and inflammation. Also complex therapy is used: massage, physical education, physiotherapy,

In the later stages of the pathology development, conservative methods are ineffective. Prompt intervention is necessary. Depending on the stage of the disease and the presence of arthrosis complications, different types of operations are performed: arthroscopy, arthrodesis or endoprosthetics. The first type of intervention is usually used in the second stage of the disease. During the procedure, the surgeon removes fragments of cartilage with a special tool - arthroscope. Such an operation effectively eliminates the problem for at least several years without possible relapses.

If the reaches the extreme stage, arthrodesis is performed - this is the complete joint removal, with further foot boness and lower leg plicing. After the operation, the mobility of the limb returns, but the leg does not function at full strength. Endoprosthetics is the replacement of a damaged joint with an artificial prosthesis. This is the most effective method of dealing with arthrosis of the ankle joint in the neglected stage. When installing a high-quality endoprosthesis, the patient's leg functions at full strength for 20–25 years. Prostheses from the best manufacturers, meeting international standards are applied in our clinic.

Soon, the patient manifests signs such as a change in gait, a feeling of “clicking” during movement. With the disease progression, joints become increasingly fragile, swelling, rubbing up sunase progression. This leads to the gradual joint destruction and the complete loss of the support leg function

It is difficult to diagnose the disease in the early stages with the help of external examination. An x-ray and MRI are required. If ram-heel joint arthrosis has just begun to develop, conservative treatment methods are used. Usually there are drugs, physiotherapy, massage, physical education. If therapy does not bring proper results, surgical intervention is prescribed.

The type of operation is chosen depending on the stage of the disease. The most common type of intervention is arthrodesis. This is an operation involving locking the joint.

+Haglund's deformation

Haglund deformity (osteophyte) is the formation of bone growth in the back of the heel. Pathology arises from the inflammatory process that occurs as a result of the constant Achilles tendon friction. This process leads to the appearance of pathological cartilage. The change is clearly visible suing X-ray examination.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF HAGLUND'S DEFORMATION

The main causes of osteophyte calcaneus include:

  • congenital high foot arch, which causes increased friction of the Achilles tendon.
  • reduced Achilles tendon elasticity;
  • other foot deformities (varus, flat-valgus).

There can be no pain in this type of deformation. The main symptom of the disease is the formation of a characteristic bump in the back of the heel. Sometimes pathology is accompanied by both edema and inflammation of the mucous membrane of the sac and tendon sheath. In this case, there is pain when walking or even when sitting. The disease is observed in both adults and children. Anger may appear on one or both legs.

METHODS OF TREATMENT OF HAGLUND'S DEFORMATION

To relieve pain and to eliminate the disease at an early stage, conservative treatment methods are used:

  • wearing orthopedic shoes with a soft back or without it at all;
  • anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs;
  • different methods of physiotherapy;
  • wearing ankle orthosis.

If the listed methods do not bring results, surgical treatment is recommended. The main purpose of the operation is to remove the pathological growth. Conductive or local anesthesia is used during the procedure. The operation can take place in two ways:

  • An open method — the surgeon makes a 4-5 cm incision to remove growths. The Achilles tendon is removed, and the pathological cartilage is removed by a medical saw. The doctor puts stitches and a sterile bandage.
  • Minimally invasive method - the operation is performed using endoscopic instruments through a small incision (up to 5 mm). The method of surgical intervention depends on many factors: the degree of pathology development, the patient's condition, and concomitant diseases.

Usually, it is necessary to wear an orthosis in order to reduce the load on the foot after the operation. In the first week you can move independently, sometimes with the help of crutches. In the postoperative period, regular dressings, the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, and physiotherapeutic procedures are necessary. Full rehabilitation usually lasts 4-6 weeks. However, with some types of intervention, recovery takes 2-3 months.

+Varus foot deformity

Varus foot deformity is a legs curvature, in which feet “look” at each other, forming an O-shape of legs. Deformation adversely affects not only the feet, but also the knees. The disease leads to meniscus compression. Severe pathology leads to the femur displacement of the. You should immediately consult a doctor at the first signs of the disease.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF VARUS FOOT DEFORMITY

The main causes of varus foot deformity:

  • heredity;
  • metabolic disease;
  • regular uncomfortable shoes wearing;
  • uneven load on the foot;
  • skeletal system diseases;
  • injuries;
  • endocrine system diseases;
  • severe body weakening.
  • The disease often affects children and even newborns, characterized by the arch curvature and the foot axis. Pathology is like a club foot, but there are differences between them. Clubfoot is an exclusively congenital disease, while varus deformity is formed in the first years of life or in adults.

    The pathological process is slow, it is difficult to recognize it at the initial stage. It starts with discomfort during walking, difficulties with shoes selection. Then there is a foot pain. After that the pathology becomes visually noticeable: fingers are bent, feet turn to each other. In childhood, the deformation can be recognized when the child starts to run badly, jumping and walking awkwardly, often falling.

    METHODS OF VARUS FOOT DEFORMITY TREATMENT

    A complex of conservative methods is used to treat a disease:

    • foot and back massage;
    • physiotherapy;
    • the use of orthopedic correctors;
    • wearing both orthopedic shoes and insoles.

    If conservative methods are ineffective, experts recommend using surgical treatment. The method of intervention is determined by the surgeon, based on the severity of the pathology, the presence of complications, the patient's age and associated diseases. Perhaps the use of low-impact techniques is needed.

    After a competent intervention, the postoperative period is only a few days. Then the patient is prescribed a course of rehabilitation for full recovery (massage, gymnastics, physiotherapy, orthopedic shoes, diet).

+Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a disease when there is an inflammatory process in the plantar fascia. Inflammation occurs where the fascia attaches to the calcaneus. This is the most common cause of pain in the heel. When salts are piled up in the affected area, a bone growth (the so-called heel spur) is formed. Treatment of the disease is possible both by conservative and surgical methods.

PLANTAR FACCTION CAUSES

Plantar fasciitis occurs due to following reasons:

  • a large load on foot;
  • excess weight;
  • regular long distance running;
  • wearing uncomfortable shoes;
  • incorrect walking (wrong load distribution on the foot);
  • spinal injury;
  • passive lifestyle;
  • flat foot.

The disease often affects athletes, especially runners (due to the increased load on the feet). Women are usually at risk, since men have stronger foot ligaments.

SYMPTOMS OF THE DISEASE

The main symptom of the disease is acute heel pain. It increases with walking, causing a considerable discomfort. Usually pain syndrome is pronounced in the morning, as soon as the patient gets out of bed. During the day, the pain subsides, but then resumes in the evening. If you increase the load on the foot, the pain will noticeably increase. Sometimes the pain becomes so strong that you want to walk on toes, without stepping on heel.

SURGICAL TREATMENT OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS

In the early stages of the disease, specialists apply a number of conservative procedures: physiotherapy, massage, physical therapy, and medication. But if these methods of treatment do not show significant results or the disease has reached a severe stage, surgical treatment is used.

During operation heel spurs and relieve constricted nerves are removed. The procedure is performed using both local anesthesia and endoscopic instruments. The post-rehabilitation period with open surgery includes 2-3 weeks of leg immobilization. But if an innovative min. invasive method is used, long-term immobilization is not required. The patient should wear orthopedic shoes. After 3-4 weeks you can return to physical activity and gradually increase the load on the leg.
