Abstract

Arthroscopic treatment of hallux rigidus is appropriate after failed nonoperative treatment. Debridement with cheilectomy, and fusion are the main indications for arthroscopic treatment of hallux rigidus. If the cartilage damage is extensive and the patient has consented, then a fusion is performed at the same sitting.
