Whose had non-unions of MTP joint fusion??
I have had not one but two MTP joint fusions....After first fusion, I had a non-union at the bone graft site, so ortho surgeon redid the fusion with different hardware, took out old cadaver bone graft and put in a new cadaver bone graft and inserted stem cells (my own as well as from a tissue bank). My surgeon is Mark Myerson, one of the best foot surgeons on the East Coast. Uses cadaver bone for bone grafting, not your own live bone.
So now, 6 months post-op from my 2nd MTP fusion, I have a non-union of the bone graft again! I've been tested for a bone infection--negative--and also blood flow to the bone graft area--fine.
Has anyone else had this experience?
And can anyone recommend an ortho surgeon in the Wash, DC area that they've had success with?
