Renewal of big toe joint
The following information is available from a patient, who had a Renewal of Big Toe Joint performed by Mr. Adam Budgen.
Just had to let you know how delighted I am with my new Sylastic implant. I have been at work today and managed to wear my high heels for 4hrs before changing them. I never thought that I would be able to do that again! The difference between the Hemi-cap implant and this one has been a totally different experience. After a week, if it had not been for the wound healing and swelling, I would have been mobile and had movement in the joint and the next joint in the toe. If you can remember I could not move that second toe joint at all and certainly could not wear anything but flat shoes for the last 18mths.
The healing of the wound and everything has been perfect. I also managed to go walking in the Dales again at the weekend, so as you can see life is good.
Thank you once again,
Regards to you,
from P. M.
