Surgical techniques

This operative manual contains arthroscopic and open procedures of the ankle and hindfoot. The procedures are divided in four categories. Detailed information guides orthopedic surgeons through each procedure by means of videos. For a quick reference there is a picture & text option for each procedure. The effectiveness of the techniques is supported by trials and publications.

Open Procedures

Although arthroscopy has become the preferred technique to treat intra-articular pathology, several conditions can very well be performed by open surgery. These include treatment of Flatfoot, Cavusfoot, posttraumatic deformities, instability and arthrosis.
