Flat Foot or High Arch Correction with Calcaneal Sliding Osteotomy

Calcaneal Sliding Osteotomy (with Lateral Plate Fixation)



This procedure changes the alignment of the calcaneus, commonly called the "heel bone." The surgeon will cut this bone, adjust its position and stabilize it with an implant. This technique can be used to correct problems such as a flat foot or an abnormally high arch.
