Chevron Osteotomy

A chevron osteotomy is the most common technique used to correct mild to moderate bunion deformities. Traditionally, this procedure has been performed through an open approach. However, since the advent of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), surgeons now have the option to perform a chevron osteotomy through small percutaneous incisions. Following the osteotomy, the capital fragment is shifted laterally and fixated with either Compression FT screws for the MIS approach or Compression PT screws for the traditional open approach.
