Key Insights On The Percutaneous Calcaneal Displacement Osteotomy

Issue Number:  Volume 30 – Issue 7 – July 2017 Author(s):  Lawrence A. DiDomenico, DPM, FACFAS, Zach Flynn, DPM, and Adam Grahn, DPM In contrast to a lateral open osteotomy, the percutaneous calcaneal displacement osteotomy facilitates less soft tissue and neurovascular compromise, a reduced risk of post-op wound complications and improved cosmesis. With this in mind, these authors take a closer look at the literature on the technique and offer a practical guide to performing the osteotomy.
