Dorsal Approach - Anatomic Repair of the Plantar Plate, combined with a Weil Osteotomy
Dr. Lowell Weil, Jr. (Chicago, IL) performs a Weil Osteotomy and CPR plantar plate repair from a dorsal approach, utilizing the CPR Implant Kit, small joint distractor and Mini Scorpion DX. This surgical treatment reconstructs the anatomic structures that lead to the instability of the lesser MTP joints. The Complete Plantar Plate Repair System (CPR) was developed in conjunction with leading experts to solve one of the most common difficulties encountered by foot and ankle surgeons, lesser MTP joint instability. A plantar plate repair, lateral soft tissue reefing and metatarsal shortening can successfully restore the normal alignment of the joint with anatomic reconstruction.
