Hallux Rigidus

Hallux rigidus is a condition that affects the big toe joint, causing stiffness and pain. At Carrollton Foot Center, we offer thorough evaluation and treatment options for this condition. Dr. Khavari, our experienced podiatrist, starts with a physical examination and x-rays to properly diagnose and evaluate the severity of the condition.

Once diagnosed, Dr. Khavari creates a personalized treatment plan for each patient. Conservative treatment options include orthotics with appropriate modifications and oral or injection therapy. These treatments aim to relieve pain and improve joint function without invasive procedures.

However, if conservative treatments fail to provide relief, surgical options are also available. The most common surgical procedures for Hallux rigidus are cheilectomy, first MPJ arthrodesis, and first MPJ implants. Cheilectomy involves removing bone spurs and other obstructions around the joint to improve mobility and reduce pain. First MPJ arthrodesis fuses the joint to eliminate motion in the joint and relieve pain. First MPJ implants are designed to replace the damaged joint with an artificial one, improving mobility and reducing pain.

Dr. Khavari stays up to date on the latest advancements in Hallux rigidus treatment options and utilizes the most effective techniques to provide her patients with the best possible outcomes. If you are experiencing stiffness and pain in your big toe joint, schedule an appointment with us to get the relief you need.
