THE DR. BALDINGER APPROACH: Many foot problems such as bunions, heel pain, heel spurs, shin splints flat feet and secondary issues such as knee pain, hip pain, and lower back pain and poor posture can be the result of having misaligned feet.
Now there is a new state-of-the-art solution to structural foot issues.
Dr. Baldinger is a specialist in a powerful new procedure called EOTTS–Extra-Osseous TaloTarsal Stabilization. This permanent solution has proven to be far superior to temporary measures like arch supports. It is safe for patients from age 5 to age 90!
If you are considering bunion surgery or traditional reconstructive surgery, talk to us first about whether EOTTS makes sense for you.
A titanium stent is inserted into a naturally occurring space in between the ankle and heel bones. This fixes the pathology of the misaligned bones, instantly reducing the excessive abnormal forces.
This procedure is done in a state of the art out patient facility. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is performed under a local anesthetic. A one-inch long incision is made near the ankle for insertion of the stent. Afterwards patients can get up and walk immediately without the need for a cast, cane or crutches. No overnight hospitalization is required.
After six weeks of modified activity, the stent is locked in position and the ligaments naturally grow around it.
Is it Safe?
This procedure has been approved by the FDA for children and adults.
Call Dr. Baldinger and see if EOTTS can dramatically improve the quality of your life.
