Overcorrected Flatfoot Reconstruction

The overcorrected flatfoot reconstruction is a less common but often difficult sequelae of surgical treatment of the adult acquired flatfoot deformity. Understanding the patient’s symptoms and how they correlate to the procedures performed during the index surgery are paramount to determining the appropriate course of treatment. Patients’ symptoms may resemble those seen in the cavovarus foot condition, often secondary to overlengthening of the lateral column or excessive displacement of the calcaneal tuberosity.
