  • Hallux Limitus/ Hallux Rigidus


    I was recently diagnosed with Hallux Limitus GRADE II at the 1st Metarsal
    Joint. The range of motion of the great toe has decreased. So when the toe is
    bent upward there is a certain amount of pain and or shooting pain. After
    reading all these articles I'm having doubts about having the operation. My
    primary care physician refered me to one of the best DPM in Boston and who
    operates at the New England Baptist Hospital. The BEST place to go for
    orthopedic surgery. But yet, I am still concerened if the procedure will
    really help. I am supposed to have a "Modified Austin" and "Cheilectomy". The
    Dr. says its a simple procedure and I will feel better in the future and will
    be a painless operation. But, reading these articles, I have doubts. Can
    anyone reply to me please? Should I get Orthotics and forget surgery?
    Thanks!!!! Arnie
