The Third Annual American Society of Podiatric Surgeons (ASPS) Surgical Conference was recently held in Baltimore, September 11-12, 2015. Dr. Robert Greenhagen lectured on predislocation syndrome also known as lesser metatarsophalangeal instability. He covered a variety of topics on the condition including proper diagnosis/clinical examination, non-surgical treatment and surgical options. He also introduced a new surgical technique that both he and Dr. Nelson have been developing to correct the condition. This technique and outcome data will be published in the near future in hopes of advancing the treatment of this difficult condition.
