patient with pes planus, flat feet, excess pronation; photos by Sydney Foot and Ankle Surgeon Damien Lafferty

The images are of a recent patient who is 4 weeks post-op, following Hyprocure insertion. This patient had the typical signs and symptoms seen with pes planus and her symptoms could not be controlled with orthoses solely. Note the excellent alignment seen both anteriorly and posteriorly. On the anterior images, you can observe the small eschar present following the incision to insert the Hyprocure over the sinus tarsi.

If you have any specific questions or would like to discuss similar cases, please contact me.
