MIFOOT PROCEDURES

Restoring Motion,
Without the Fusion

How The Mifoot
Procedure Works

The Mifoot bunion correction procedure avoids the great toe joint, resulting in patients typically having less stiffness than as seen with open techniques.

In addition, due to smaller incisions and less soft tissue damage, patients experience less pain and a faster recovery. Your surgeons will utilize either one Centrolock implant or a combination of PECA implants to correct and stabilize the bunion correction.
