    Before and after x-rays of posterior tibial tendon surgery

    Hi Everyone,

    My surgeon shared my before and after surgery for flat foot reconstruction weight bearing x-rays with me at my last check up. There was quite a difference! I was amazed and it made all the suffering seem worth it. Didn't know if anyone might be interested in how different your anatomy is after or not but figured I'd fling them out here and if they helped anyone, then great!

    I'd love to see anyone else's pictures of before and after if you have them. So fascinating what they can do!

    Yours look great, you can definitely see a difference! I agree, I love seeing the x-rays, I'm glad you made this thread!
    I just took pics of copies of my x-rays on my phone a minute ago so these attachments are definitely not the best quality! But they'll just have to do.

    WOW Twix! That is so cool!!! You have an arch now! What a difference in your view from above! What actual procedures did you have done? No calcaneal osteotomy?

    Thanks so much for sharing! Love this!

    Re: Before and after x-rays of posterior tibial tendon surgery

    Haha I could hardly believe it myself! Here are the procedures:
    -Gastroc recession.
    -Modified Kidner procedure.
    -Subtalar arthroereisis.
    -Cotton Osteotomy, middle cuneiform.

    This type of thread is exciting

    You're welcome! I just edited my pics and I think that's a little easier to view them for comparison.. I hope other people post soon

    You are right! They are MUCH easier to compare. What a difference in your arch! How many weeks post-op are you?

    When you go to post a message, there's a little paperclip icon (in the same row as the Font, Sizes, etc) which allows you to browse your computer to upload individual files one by one or upload the files from a URL. I just looked at the album from your profile and the foot looks awesome!

    Nice arch swimbunnie! Interesting you have two screws up front. Is that where they lengthened your foot on the side? Which procedures did you have done?

    Re: Before and after x-rays of posterior tibial tendon surgery

    Thanks Lightstepper. My doc did media calcaneal slide, FDL transfer, and the two screws up front are from a metatarsal-tarsal fusion.
