August 31, 2016

Have you ever wondered how much time it took other Toe HemiCAP Patients to return to their favorite activities after surgery? The chart below was compiled to help answer your questions.

Typical Patient Function & Activity Milestones after Hemiarthroplasty or Total Toe Replacement

Based on their experience, surgeons rated the time it took for patients to achieve certain milestones after surgery such as driving a car, walking in shoes and returning to work, activity or sport. Typically, patients are able to perform the activities of daily life, including returning to work, 2-6 weeks after surgery.

Following Toe HemiCAP® hemiarthroplasty, or ToeMotion® Total Toe replacement, no restrictions on job, sports or activity were recommended. Following these procedures, most patients are expected to return to work within 2 weeks after surgery (66.7%) or within a 15-30 day range (33.3%). The time to return to work was classified as equal or faster than cheilectomy, faster than other implants and faster than fusion. Sports participation was started at a mean of 49.3 days and the satisfaction regarding the return to sport and an active lifestyle was rated as Excellent (66.7%), Very good (33.3%) or Good (16.7%).

      Hi Duanne, That’s wonderful that you have increased motion in your toe after the HemiCAP Implant. However, each person heals differently. We suggested contacting your surgeons office directly to discuss your continued pain.

  3. Please send information on this procedure and by who or where in or near Sioux Falls, SD this prodedure is being done
