Find out what happens during a midfoot fusion, how it can improve your range of motion and what to expect from your recovery
As a result of the surgery, these joints will become rigid and your pain will be improved. The loss of movement in the joints is not noticeable as these joints normally have very little movement.
The surfaces are then removed from these joints which are then placed into their correct positions and held together with screws, plates, and/or staples.
After the operation, you will not be able to put weight through your foot for two weeks. At two weeks, you will have your stitches removed and you will be placed in a light-weight cast. Using crutches, for six weeks you can place about half your weight through this cast when walking.
At eight weeks after surgery, you will be placed in a removable boot to walk in for four more weeks and will be able to put all your weight through this boot. At three months following surgery, you will be able to return to normal shoe wear. The swelling can take from six months to a year to completely resolve.
