Abstract

Hallux rigidus is a common disorder that affects the first metatarsophalangeal joint. It alters joint kinematics and causes patients to change gait patterns for symptomatic relief. A variety of nonoperative strategies and operative techniques are available for the treatment of hallux rigidus. Cheilectomy surgery is an effective surgical intervention performed for early stages of hallux rigidus that concentrates on the removal of the dorsal osteophytes from the first metatarsophalangeal joint. Although there are limited studies, there is evidence that the kinematics of the joint is changed after cheilectomy as well as gait patterns. © 2006 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
