Abstract

Hallux rigidus is a degenerative condition leading to arthritis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. Cheilectomy is a surgical procedure that is used in the treatment of hallux rigidus. It removes dorsal and dorsomedial or dorsolateral osteophytes, primarily relieving the impingement at the first metatarsophalangeal joint, which causes patients pain. The minimally invasive technique has proven to be an excellent technique to remove bony spurs to relieve symptoms with minimal surgical complications and fast recovery time.
