12 Questions to Ask Your Surgeon before Toe Surgery

Do you suffer from Toe pain due to Arthritis or pain in your big toe that is limiting your range of motion? Many patients are unaware of all the treatment options available to them, many having post-operative limitations. Patients should feel comfortable with their post-operative expectations. For example, after toe fusion, you will not be able to bend your toe or perform certain tasks that you may have done prior to the surgery. It is important to ask your surgeon the right questions, so you are receiving the appropriate surgical procedure suitable for your lifestyle. At Arthrosurface, we want the best outcomes for our patients, so we’ve put together a helpful list of questions for you to ask your surgeon.

Toe Surgery Questions

What Makes Us Different

The ToeMotion® Total Toe System restores mobility back to your toe by recreating your natural anatomy. It is different than other replacements because it is implanted into the bone rather than on top, leaving natural bone to support the implant around its edges. This type of implant placement does not disturb surrounding tissue attachments which are needed to maintain stability and lift-off for walking.
It is the only toe replacement that is implanted with screws on both sides of the joint to provide rock-solid fixation.
There is a significant group of people with early joint disease and cartilage damage that have failed treatments. These people are younger, physically active and have lifestyles that don’t permit significant downtime. They are searching for Stay Active® Joint Replacement implants that are less invasive and preserve lifestyles. The surgical procedures for our joint preservation implant systems can be performed on an outpatient basis that allows a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery!
Other benefits include:

  • Implants fit to a patient’s joint size and shape.
  • Screw fixation provides a stable implant and has shown superior strength when compared to simple push-in and press-fit implants.
  • Implant is placed into the surface rather than on top, leaving the joint less surgically altered.
  • Motion and natural anatomy of the toe is preserved.
  • May be performed on an outpatient basis.
  • Positive results published in peer reviewed medical journals.
