Charcot Reconstruction: Specialized Care for Foot Deformity

Charcot Reconstruction is a specialized surgical procedure aimed at addressing foot deformities caused by Charcot neuroarthropathy, a condition characterized by weakening of the bones and joints in the foot due to nerve damage. At Our Clinic, we specialize in Charcot Reconstruction, offering comprehensive care to help our patients restore stability, function, and mobility to their feet.

Understanding Charcot Neuroarthropathy

Charcot neuroarthropathy is a serious complication of diabetes and other neuropathic conditions, characterized by progressive degeneration and deformity of the bones and joints in the foot. Nerve damage leads to loss of sensation and proprioception, causing patients to continue walking on a foot with fractures and dislocations without feeling pain. Over time, this can result in severe deformity, instability, and ulceration of the foot.

Symptoms of Charcot Neuroarthropathy

The symptoms of Charcot neuroarthropathy may include:

Swelling, redness, and warmth in the affected foot

Deformity or collapse of the arch of the foot

Instability or difficulty bearing weight on the affected foot

Ulceration or open wounds on the foot that do not heal

Limited range of motion in the ankle and foot joints

Comprehensive Treatment Options

Charcot Reconstruction is a multi-step process that aims to stabilize the foot, correct deformities, and prevent further damage. Treatment may include:

Offloading: Offloading the affected foot with a cast, brace, or custom orthotic device to reduce pressure and promote healing.

Surgical Intervention: Surgical reconstruction may be necessary to realign and stabilize the bones and joints in the foot. This may involve fusing unstable joints, correcting deformities, and removing damaged or infected tissue.

Wound Care: Comprehensive wound care is essential to prevent infection and promote healing of ulcers or open wounds on the foot.

Physical Therapy: A structured physical therapy program may be prescribed to improve strength, flexibility, and balance in the foot and ankle.

Diabetic Management: Proper management of diabetes and other underlying medical conditions is essential to prevent complications and promote healing.
