SYMPTOMATIC ACCESSORY NAVICULAR AND HALLUX VALGUS - DR KHAIRUL FAIZI MOHAMMAD





This is another case of hallux valgus with a symptomatic accessory navicular bone which was recently treated. The xrays show the improvement in the positioning of the big toe in relation to the second toe with less crowding in the webspace. Note that rotation of the big toe has also been corrected.


The intra operative photo shows the X-plate(TM) . This is the first of its kind in Malaysia which provides advanced forms of fixation for this type of surgical correction for hallux valgus.

Hi Dr. Khairul, I am the wife of your recent patient, Mawi, and we think you did a good job on the operation. We just went to clean his dressing this morning with Dr. Kamal and everything looks like in a good shape, and we are going to take out the stitches next week.

Is there any dos and don't while he is recovering? what about the things that he can or cannot do after the recovering process of 6 weeks? Will be good to know.

Thank you.

Regards,
Fina

Dear Osmawi and Fina,

I am glad the surgery went well. I hope by now you should be on your feet and getting back to normal activities.

Dr Sanusi,

I have seen the minimally invasive work for Hallux valgus correction and yes it does work! I find that the pathology in our region is very different than that of our western counterparts.

There has been a massive trend to perform scarf osteotomies, chevrons etc but unfortunately, I have had a large number of patients consulting me for recurrences.

Thanks for your comments and do continue to contribute.

Kind regards,
