This 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:
