Minimally Invasive Flatfoot Surgery (HyproCure)

HyProCure

HyProCure is an extra-osseous talo-tarsal stabilisation (EOTTS) procedure designed to help people with symptomatic Pes planus(flat-foot) deformity.  This is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require cutting or drilling in the bones. A small titanium stent is placed into a naturally occurring space called sinus tarsi between the ankle and heel bone to instantly realign and stabilize the hindfoot.

Although HyProCure is usually performed as a stand-alone, single procedure, there may be additional surgical procedures required for more complex cases.

Am I a candidate for HyProCure procedure?

Symptomatic Pes Planus (also known as flatfeet) may cause many foot problems such as bunions, hammertoes, painful heels/spurs, shin splints and other secondary issues such as knee pain, hip pain, lower back pain.

HyProCure can be considered in patients with symptomatic Pes Planus that have not responded well with conservative treatment such as custom-designed orthotics, physical therapy abd footwear/activity modifications.

How would HyProCure help with symptomatic Pes Planus?

Once HyProCure is placed, the bones will be realigned to reduce the force that causes detrimental motion in the rearfoot. The majority of the body’s weight will naturally rebalanced on the bones surrounding it. Most patients experience a significant improvement in walking, running or jumping.
