Beautiful ballerina shoes and Medic Ballerina by Prof. Vitek


Every woman wants to wear nice shoes.

If high heels are worn only on special occasions, there are no medical objections.

However, some women wear the high shoes constantly, and they should therefore frequently perform stretching exercises for the calf muscles and especially for the short muscles of the foot. These exercises should best take place several times a day. Nevertheless, overloading damage can not always be avoided.

That hallux, hammer toe & Co are caused only by wearing high heels is certainly wrong, as the genetics have a hand in it.


Shoes after the surgery

Many women patients are very dissatisfied with the usual hallux-shoes worn after surgery. These shoes are extremely bulky and cosmetically dissatisfactory.

I kept hearing the phrase, "Now that you have operated my foot so beautifully, why do I have to wear these shoes?"

Therefore, I have developed a shoe together with the German company Hego Medical:
the Sangarre Medic ballerina.

This shoe has a sophisticated tobacco pouche mechanism, which gives the front part an extreme elasticity.
This allows a normal foot, but also a swollen foot and one covered in a thick bandage to fit into the Medic Ballerina easily. The shoe does not generate any pressure on the foot despite the dressing. The women patients can walk well without limping, because there is no heel difference (unlike earlier), and it feels as if 2 of the same shoes are worn.

The Medic ballerina are visually and cosmetically appealing, and functionally they are excellently suited to bridge the time needed after a forefoot surgery until being able to wear normal shoes. These shoes can be used for driving as well, without the risk of getting caught in the pedals. For joint stiffening operations, even a stiff insert can be inserted into the shoe if desired.

My women patients, and even men are very happy with this shoe and have expressed their excitement.
