First Metatarsal-phalangeal (MTP) Total Joint Replacement (MOVEMENT™)
This procedure uses a small, two-piece implant to cover damaged or missing articular cartilage in the MTP joint, where the base of the great toe meets the foot. The implant restores mobility to the bones of this joint, allowing them to glide smoothly against each other. This procedure is commonly used to treat hallux rigidus, also called stiff big toe.
Our Simi Valley office and Porter Ranch office and Orthopedic Walk-In Clinic will be closed on Friday, October 11 due to the fires. Services at our other locations may be affected as well due to travel conditions; however, we will try to let everyone know if their appointment or surgery is affected. Please stay safe and contact us at (818) 901-6600 if you would like to reschedule your appointment for any reason. We apologize for any inconvenience.x
