Arthrosurface® HemiCAP® Resurfacing for the Great Toe

This procedure uses a small, metal, cap-like implant to cover damaged or missing articular cartilage in the joint of the great toe, restoring mobility to the toe. Articular cartilage covers the surfaces of bones in the joint, allowing them to glide smoothly against each other. This procedure is commonly used to treat hallux rigidus, or stiff big toe.
