Gout, Hallux Rigidus

I am 58 year old male with severe joint pain in my left great toe (6+ years). I have been researching the surgical options since all else has failed. My question is would amputation of the toe result in larger problems (balance, pain, etc) than joint replacement or other corrective surgery?

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.
