Description

Midfoot arthritis is a common foot problem representing approximately 12% of people over age 50. Due to the diverse presentation of pain, functional limitations, shoe complaints, and swelling, diagnosis targeting the specific joints contributing to the problems can be difficult. The multi-segmental, interdigitating block of related joints poses challenges with fusion treatment as it may impact the load and forces on adjacent joints. In this webinar, faculty will highlight and present solutions to problems and unmet needs surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of midfoot arthritis.

 

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy of the midfoot joints
  • Identify common patient complaints related to midfoot arthritis
  • Employ surgical techniques for midfoot arthritis treatment 
  • Discuss the complications of surgery and unmet needs with current surgical treatments
