possible surgery?

Posted by Deb D on 8/22/04 at 07:48 (158526)

My ortho has mentioned a surgery called Lateral column lengthening and a tendon transfer? What is the sucess rate for these and has anyone had this type of surgery?
I have had PF for 1 1/2 yrs now.

Hi
Why does he want to do this amount of foot surgery for Pf?. What tendon does he want to transfer? Give us some more history

he wants to replace the tendon that is making the top part of my foot swollen. I have what they call progressive flat foot. I have to see another ortho. in Sept. to see if it is necessary.

Why would there be swelling on the top of your foot with pf?
