How is Standing Freezing (Fixing) Surgery Performed?

In foot problems, especially in foot deformations, fixation surgeries called freezing among the people are frequently applied. Fixation means joining joints together, fusing bone to bone. If there is an calcification in the joint, if there is pain due to calcification or if there is a deformation called severe rigidity in the foot, this fixation surgery is performed. The aim of these surgeries is to obtain a stable, smooth and painless foot. A fixation surgery performed in the appropriate position and in accordance with the technique will allow the patient to continue his daily life without causing a significant functional limitation.

The foot is a structure that must be stable. There are 29 joints in the foot, not one or two, except for the ankle. When this is the case, it is not hesitated to fix several joints when necessary. The foot must be stable in order to carry the load. As Leonardo da Vinci said years ago, the foot is a magnificent architectural structure, but when this architectural structure begins to deteriorate, the standard of living of people drops drastically. Therefore, some joints can be fixed when necessary in order to make this architectural structure back to its original state, at least not as normal as before, but painlessly load-bearing.
