Addressing hallux varus, an uncommon outcome of failed bunion surgery.
Hallux varus is an unfortunate, uncommon result after bunion surgery. About 30% of Dr. Blitz’s practice consists of patients who seek him out after a failed bunion surgery. Performed elsewhere, their procedures have left them with a shortened big toe that deviates outward instead of in. In many cases, surgery is the only effective way to address the new problem.
Whether it’s a simple realignment or a severe hallux varus that could cause arthritis, Dr. Blitz not only works to repair patients’ feet – he’s dedicated to getting them moving again, and to restoring their daily lives.
