Foot and Ankle – Resurfacing

Aligned with our joint preservation philosophy, Joint Operations look to offer technologies that avoid the need for fusion of the toe and ankle joints. We deliver this through the Arthrosurface MTP and Talar Dome resurfacing implants and the ChondroGide patch for cartilage repair.

Arthritis of the toe and associated conditions such as Hallux Rigidus and Freiberg’s Disease are disabling conditions for the patient. The traditional form of treatment is to remove a portion of the joint to free up movement and relieve pain. If arthritis continues the next step traditionally has been a fusion of the joint.

Whilst fusion can be a very effective procedure in terms of pain relief, many patients and surgeons are looking for alternatives that enable them to retain movement in the joint. This is particularly important for active people and for those wishing to wear fashion shoes with a raised heal.

Joint Operations are market leaders in toe replacement with the Arthrosurface HemiCAP implant. This technology enables the surgeon to resurface the metatarsal head with a highly anatomic implant that rests directly against the subchondral bone. Due to the thinness of the implant minimal bone is resected and the forces acted on the prosthesis are greatly reduced.  For this reason surgeons can be confident that their patients will receive a secure joint resurfacing that will not loosen and will enable them to retain their pre-arthritis levels of activity.

Similarly many cases of ankle fusion occur due to a talar dome cartilage lesion, often caused as a result of ankle fracture or a severe sprain. Left untreated arthritis will spread through the joint resulting in the need for major surgery such as fusion or joint replacement. Joint Operations have technologies to treat both early and late stage talar dome lesions. For cartilage defects we provide the NanoFx microfracture awl and the ChondroGide patch detailed in the cartilage section of our website. To treat later stage conditions Arthrosurface make a localised implant similar to the HemiCAP toe that resurfaces the affected area of the talar dome.

Arthrosurface HemiCap MTP

The Arthrosurface HemiCAP DF and Toemotion MTP systems enable patients to avoid toe fusion and maintain their lifestyle choices. Whether the surgeon performs a total or partial joint replacement, the HemiCAP is a much less destructive procedure than other replacement options. As such it provides an important option for patients who are post-cheilectomy and remain reluctant to lose mobility in the joint through a fusion.

Arthrosurface HemiCap Talar Dome

The Arthrosurface HemiCAP Talar Dome implant provides patients with a bridge between biological cartilage repair and ankle fusion or replacement.
