Hallux valgus, splayfoot, tailor's bunion and hammer toes correction using an own innovative minimally invasive method since 2005
The story behind it
Each of the 150 previously known worldwide operations of hallux valgus has at least one disadvantage (the large number is enough to suggest that no method is really faultless):
Mostly, however, the operations have more than one drawback - and a single method, though it is still common in many places, cannot be enough to correct all misalignments.
Hammer toes are still treated almost everywhere using the nearly 100 year old operation method by Hohmann (described in 1922), wherein the joint forming bone portion is removed, i.e. cut away. Actually a mutilating surgery, which, although it sometimes does deliver pretty good results, but which often leads to feeble stub toes and certainly favours the origin and development of hallux valgus (crooked big toe), because the other toes can no longer provide any support to the big toe.
The consequence of this
After much thought, and countless sketches and experiments since 2003, I have therefore developed new surgical methods, which lead to very good results and it seems that finally all the disadvantages are eliminated.
The new features
New since 2005: Correction with the intramedullary plate (lying inside the bone) - with a single system (but different implants), depending on the misalignment of the big toe requires:
This method shows previously unknown correction options, immediate load possible
Not all cases of hallux are treated with the same operation type, but the deformity is corrected on site and stabilized with a plate that is located INSIDE THE BONE.
The development of the V-Tek-Methode has been proven since 2005 internationally x-fold and is now mininal-invasive
