Cavovarus foot correction
A cavus foot has a high arch which causes people to walk on the outside of the foot. Treatment depends on the amount of deformity and related problems.
The main goals of cavus foot surgery are to reduce pain, improve function, and prevent further damage or injuries.
The surgical procedures involved with the correction of the cavus foot are varied and depend on the patient’s foot and ankle alignment and related problems. Typically, the foot is realigned by cutting and repositioning the bones (known as osteotomies), tightening ligaments and transferring tendons also may be necessary.
