Flatfoot is a well-known disease, part of our everyday lives.

The background of the rapidly deteriorating flatfoot in adulthood is most often the loss of the function of the tendon (tibialis posterior) passing under the inner ankle, elongated or torn from the overload.


Complaints also appear at the outer ankle with increasing deformity and slowly lead to complete wear of the surrounding joints.




Conservative treatment only aims to reduce the deterioration of the condition and, unfortunately, is not always successful.


If the result achieved with the medical shoes does not meet the demands of everyday life, we recommend surgical treatment.




During the operation, the first step is to replace the dysfunctional tendon, and then the static conditions of the foot are corrected. The goal is to restore the abnormal tilting of the heel and the flattening of the longitudinal vault. This is usually achieved by an intervention called joint osteotomies on the heel bone and the inner edge bone of the foot.


After careful physical and X-ray examinations, CT and MRI examinations if necessary, a personalized treatment plan will be set up.




As this is a complex intervention, the aftercare is also longer. 6-8 weeks of unloading in plaster, followed by a further 4-6 weeks of gradual loading in stable "walker boot".
