Flat Feet

Flat Feet

There is a treatment that is minimally invasive and affordable, so you no longer have to feel like your entire life is being controlled by flat feet.

Flat Feet

Are you feeling completely frustrated? Comparing yourself to other people? Watching them walking around, wearing open-toe shoes or thongs to the beach with their friends something that you can’t do?  Would you like to be able to do this?

Have you had this pain since you were younger and found it has become progressively worse to the point where it may be impacting your entire life, choice of career, right down to the kind of shoes you can wear?


Flat Foot Causes

Some may be born with flat foot and some may develop flat foot over time, but all types of flat foot have one thing in common, partial or total loss of the arch. Generally, this occurs in childhood and becomes progressively worse.  It can be caused by genetics, overuse, obesity or muscular diseases.

What is important is that there is a treatment that is minimally invasive and affordable, so you no longer have to feel like your entire life is being controlled by your foot or feet.


There is a revolutionary procedure called HyProCure surgery that has the potential to provide a permanent solution to pain and dysfunction caused by misaligned feet.

Many people’s only option has been to undergo extensive surgery such as fusing of the major joints in the foot and ankle. This creates one solid bone and aims to eliminate pain from the moving joint. This type of treatment/surgery completely stops joint movement in your foot which means that you may not be able to wear those high heels, participate in your favourite sport or dance class and it may cause arthritis in adjacent joints later in your life.

Thankfully there is another option and Dr Kim is the leading HyProCure surgeon in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.


Surgery is advised if non-surgical treatment fails.

What is Flat Feet Treatment Surgery?

The purpose of the HyProCure procedure is to reduce any excessive movement in the rearfoot (known as the subtalar joint) so the foot can function optimally without eliminating it altogether. The implant is designed to remain in your foot permanently.

The HyProCure implant is a small titanium stent that has been designed to be inserted in the subtalar joint, it acts as an internal orthotic for the foot. Abnormal pronation of the foot is now controlled at the source of the problem and you no longer need to rely on orthotics or orthopaedic shoes. Yes, you can wear shoes like heels again and get back to enjoying your life.

HyProCure surgery is highly successful and boasts a 94% success rate**

It is also completely reversible which means that the implant can be removed and does not cause side effects.

Imagine being back wearing normal shoes in just a few days to weeks?


HyProCure Implant Cost

From only $1800 including all follow-up appointments with Dr Kim for 3 months.

  • 1-week postop: stitch removal and wound check-up. Start wearing joggers/trainers. May return to work for desk jobs
  • 2-week postop: Check-up and examination of the wound
  • 2-4 week postop: Start gentle exercise. May return to work if not painful
  • 2-month postop: may start normal daily activities

Please note that recovery from surgery may vary from person to person.

Diagnosis of flat foot is made by a specialist based on clinical symptoms, visual observations and scans.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
