Plantar Plate Repair
What is plantar plate repair?
Following extensive practice and experience in surgical procedures, Dr. Loor is exceptional at surgical intervention including the acclaimed plantar plate repair procedure.
This procedure is used for chronic conditions such as bunions and hammertoes that result from a weak plantar plate. This is cited as a commonality especially in woman, presumably due to uncomfortable footwear.
It is also used to treat plantar plate injury which, when sustained, is localized at the ball of the foot.
What are the benefits?
Benefits of surgical intervention include but are not limited to, reducing the chance for re-injury and effectively, as well as directly, treating the condition.
Plantar plate repair is a direct way of tackling plantar plate injuries and conditions for those patients who require surgical intervention after a lack of success with conservative treatments.
