Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery: Foot surgery

Foot surgery at the Waldkrankenhaus Eisenberg covers the complete range of foot surgery. Here we have compiled the most important information on our specialist areas.

Overview of specialist areas:
Splayed foot

A splayed foot occurs when the cross-stability of the metatarsal is no longer ensured. This may result from a hereditary weakness of the muscles and ligaments, but external factors (overweight, unsuitable shoes) also play a role.

More information.


Hallux valgus

The hallux valgus (bunion) is the most frequent large toe malpositioning: The big toe turns to varying degrees towards the small toe side and the ball of the big toe protrudes to the side. On the inside of the ball, increased friction and additional pressure on the soft tissue is caused when wearing shoes.

More information.


Small toe deformities

Small toe deformities can occur in all joints. This may be caused by a muscle imbalance, a hereditary overlength of the small toe, an accompanying hallux valgus malpositioning and unsuitable shoes.

More information.


Hallux rigidus

Hallux rigidus (hallux limitus) describes joint wear on the metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe. Due to the limited mobility of the big toe when rolling the foot, constantly repeated pain is caused.

More information.


Skewed flatfoot

Skewed flatfoot refers to a malpositioning where the heel pivot is turned outwards from the lower leg pivot under load (splayed foot). At the same time, the foot arch flattens to varying degrees (fallen arches, flat foot).

More information.


Pes cavus

Pes cavus is characterised by an excessive longitudinal curvature. The cause is usually muscle or nerve disorders (e.g. hereditary sensory-motor neuropathy).

More information.


Wear-related disorders of the tarsus and of the hindfoot

An arthrosis (cartilage wear) on the joints of the tarsus or of the hindfoot usually develops as a result of previous injuries (broken bones, torn ligaments) or changes in the shape of the foot (fallen arch/flat foot).

More information.


Wear symptoms (arthrosis) on the upper ankle joint

The upper ankle joint is a joint which is subject to heavy loads and has to bear many times the weight of the body when walking and taking part in sports. Injuries of the joint, for example frequent spraining, later result in changes in cartilage due to wear.

Nerve bottleneck syndromes

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common nerve bottleneck syndromes of the foot. Patients experience pain or discomfort on the inner ankle of the foot, which may spread to the sole of the foot and the toes.

More information.


Rheumatic foot

Generally, with rheumatic disorders, all joints may be affected: Very frequently, however, patients suffer from rheumatic forefoot deformity, which painfully restricts walking and standing.

More information.


Injuries and disorders of tendons

In the area of the foot, the Achilles tendon is most frequently affected by injuries and diseases.  The Achilles tendon rupture is a sudden event which the patient feels as a severe pain (popping, whiplash). Walking and standing is then severely impaired due to the pain.
