Big Toe Joint Fusion

The most common reason to have this surgery is for. severe arthritis of the big toe, where the toe is already stiff and painful. In the fusion operation, the joint surfaces are removed so that the two bones will heal together. If there is no movement at the joint there will be no pain. Also known as arthrodesis, joint fusion is a surgical procedure for the treatment of severe arthritis pain. It involves fusing together the bones in your aching joint to create one solid bone. The fused bone is often more stable and results in decreased pain. If your arthritis is severe and traditional treatments have not been effective for you, you may require joint fusion surgery. This procedure can be used to treat conditions of the back like scoliosis or degenerative disk disease.
