Flatfoot Correction

The lifetime solution for excessive foot pronation represents a real solution for flat feet. It instantly corrects the problem at its root and immediately works on reverting the many symptoms, restoring the patient’s quality of life.

In order to understand this breakthrough solution, let’s first take a look at the problem. Flat feet is a condition medically known as hyperpronation. It occurs when the natural space between the ankle and heel bones, called the sinus tarsi, collapses. This space is at the apex of the foot’s ability to distribute weight and motion evenly, and when it collapses, the foot twists into an unnatural position and shape, creating an imbalance throughout the entire body.

HyProCure is an internal stabilization device that is placed inside the foot, right into the collapsing space. It acts as a stent to keep the space in its natural, open position. The procedure instantly stabilizes and restores the foot’s normal anatomy, which in turn also corrects the imbalances created in the rest the body. The HyProCure stent is simply pushed into place, there is no drilling or screwing involved. Thanks to its unique, anatomical design, the HyProCure device slides right into its natural corrective placement where

the natural tissues inside the space will hold it in place during the healing process.

The procedure is minimally invasive and it’s usually performed under local anesthesia or twilight sedation. Full recovery to experience all the benefits typically takes a few weeks in most cases, although it can vary from foot to foot and patient to patient.

Who needs this?

Anyone and everyone suffering from flat feet or the ill effects of hyperpronation should consider the HyProCure implant as early as possible. The longer the condition is present, the more problematic the symptoms throughout the body can get. Take a look at our common symptoms to see if flat feet are affecting your life, and if so, make an appointment to visit a doctor today to see if HyProCure is right for you

Hallux Valgus (BUNIONS) deformity

The treatment of a bunion depends entirely on how uncomfortable it is. Since the pain from a bunion is always aggravated by shoe wear, the symptoms will often depend on the type and size of shoes worn. The perception of pain or discomfort that people experience however is quite varied. There are some individuals who have small bunions that are very uncomfortable. This limits their ability to wear shoes comfortably. On the other hand, some individuals may have quite significant deformities that are annoying but do not limit their activities in anyway.

Realistically, there are only two ways to treat a bunion. Either change the size and shape of the shoe or change the size and shape of the foot.

In our Centre we can treat effectively the bunions with minimal invasive techniques that can restore the shape of the foot eliminate the pain and give a long lasting and cosmetic result.

The patient can put weight the same day with a post-op shoe and there is minimal discomfort and pain.
