A foot is an anatomical structure in humans and other mammals composed of several bones and joints, held together by connective tissues such as tendons, ligaments and muscles, which work together to enable ambulation. The foot is made up of 26 bones organized into three main parts – the tarsus (containing seven small tarsal bones), the metatarsus (containing five long metatarsal bones), and the phalanges (containing fourteen tiny phalangeal bones). The foot also has several joints, including those of the ankle, midfoot, and toes. In addition to its role in locomotion, the foot also provides balance and stability for standing upright.

A toe is one of the five digits of each foot on humans and most other mammals. It consists of three small bones connected by two joints, located near the distal end of the foot. The big toe (or hallux) is located at the base of the foot and is typically the longest digit; all other toes decrease in size as they move away from the hallux. The toe bones are held together by tendons and ligaments, which control foot movement and shape. Toes play an important role in balance and stability when standing, walking, running or climbing. They also provide a better grip on surfaces, allowing us to hold onto objects more securely. Toes are also important for sensory perception, allowing us to feel the textures and temperatures of different surfaces.

These anatomical features of foot and toe structure enable humans and other animals to walk, run and move with ease in diverse climates, terrains and environments. Understanding foot and toe anatomy is key for providing effective foot care – from the way we choose our shoes to foot exercises and orthotics.

Metatarsal ORIF surgery is a procedure used to treat fractures of the metatarsal bones in the foot. Metatarsal ORIF stands for open reduction internal fixation and involves making an incision in the skin over the fracture site, then realigning and stabilizing the broken bone with metal hardware such as screws or plates. Metatarsal ORIF surgery can also be used to treat severe bone deformities.

After Metatarsal ORIF surgery, patients will require a period of rest to allow for proper healing. During this time, the foot should be kept elevated to reduce swelling and pain. Physical therapy may also be recommended following Metatarsal ORIF surgery to maintain flexibility and strength. Most Metatarsal ORIF surgeries are successful, and patients can resume normal activities after a few weeks of rest.

Patients should be aware that Metatarsal ORIF surgery carries some risks, such as infection or nerve damage. To reduce the risk of complications after Metatarsal ORIF surgery, it is important to follow the instructions of your doctor, including taking any medications prescribed and keeping all follow-up appointments.

Bunionectomy surgery is a common procedure used to correct a bunion, which is an abnormal, bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. Bunionectomies can involve either cutting away the bony prominence or cutting
and realigning the bones of the big toe joint to eliminate pain and restore normal foot function. Bunionectomies may also involve removing or reshaping soft tissues around the big toe.

The decision to perform bunionectomy surgery depends on the severity of your symptoms, as well as other factors such as age, medical history, and lifestyle. Your doctor will discuss with you the benefits and risks associated with this procedure before it is recommended. Bunionectomy surgery is usually performed under general anesthetic on an outpatient basis and takes about one to two hours.
