Take a look at this compelling HemiCAP x-ray!

December 12, 2012

knee replacement optionsThis x-ray shows Debbie, an Arthrosurface patient who had the Toe DF HemiCAP implanted into her big toe. Prior to her toe pain, Debbie was an avid ballroom dancer who loved to wear high heels! Once her toe pain began, she feared her only option was a fusion plate which would inhibit her from having full range of motion in her toe. This would eliminate her dancing and ability to wear high heels (or even bend her toe). When she went to see Dr. Carl Hasselman, she was relieved to discover the Arthrosurface Toe HemiCAP as an option. She learned that this procedure would give her full range of motion with a speedy recovery. As you can see in the x-ray above, Debbie is back in her favorite high heels! She was also able to get back to ballroom dancing and other activities she loves. See her entire story below:

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let
    you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and
    both show the same outcome.

    Can I please get more information about surgeons who do the big toe implant in Tulsa, Ok? I had an implant done over 9 years ago, and it is still painful. Ortho is recommending fusion to fix it, but I desperately want to preserve motion. Can a Hemi implant be repeated on the same toe?

      Hi Cheryl, We sent you an email a few weeks ago with additional information. Please let us know if you did not receive it.

  3. Hi – I recently had a Cartiva implant in my big toe that failed. My surgeon says a fusion is the best fix. I don’t like what I am reading about the limitations of that procedure – I am a 60 year old active runner who would still like to wear pretty shoes and not have a limitation due to a fusion. Would I be able to have Hemicap surgery to as an alternative fix?
