Re: Austin bunionectomy

I usually will describe an Austin bunionectomy as a transver "V" osteotomy at the head of the 1st metatarsal. If I have corrected it in 2 planes, then I call it a bi-correctional transverse "V" osteotomy at the head of the 1st metatarsal.

Hope this helps

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
