At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Lilly Khavari specializes in evaluating and treating Brachymetatarsia, which is a congenital condition where one or more metatarsals are shorter than normal. This condition can cause pain, instability, and difficulty wearing shoes.
The evaluation for Brachymetatarsia at Carrollton Foot Center begins with a physical examination and radiographs to assess the extent of the condition. If the condition is causing pain and is not responsive to conservative treatment options, such as changes in shoegear or orthotics, Dr. Khavari may recommend surgical intervention.
Surgical intervention for Brachymetatarsia involves an osteotomy, which is a surgical cut to the affected metatarsal bone. After the osteotomy, an external fixation device is used to gradually lengthen the bone over a period of several weeks. This allows new bone tissue to grow and lengthen the affected metatarsal.
Dr. Khavari works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals. With her expertise in evaluating and treating Brachymetatarsia, Dr. Khavari emphasizes a comprehensive approach that prioritizes patient comfort and satisfaction.
Overall, Dr. Khavari’s evaluation and treatment approach for Brachymetatarsia at Carrollton Foot Center emphasizes a personalized approach that prioritizes conservative, non-invasive interventions before considering more invasive options. The Carrollton Foot Center team is committed to providing compassionate care and support to patients throughout their evaluation and treatment journey. With Dr. Khavari’s expertise and dedication, patients can feel confident that they are receiving the highest quality care for their Brachymetatarsia.
