This dynamic misalignment places excessive abnormal strain on the supporting structures of the foot and ankle.

This leads to shoulder tilt, which the neck tries to compensate for, resulting in a twisting of the skull. Finally, the mandible is misaligned leading to excessive unilateral muscle contraction and TMJ disorders.
“Simplicity is achievingmaximum results with Internal Deformity = Internal Solution minimal effort.”
The Solution - HyProCure The Results - HyProCured What is HyProCure? An extra-osseous, extra-articular, internal bone fixation device.“Simplicity is achievingmaximum results with minimal effort.” HyProCure – made entirely of medical grade titanium, is simply pushed into the naturally occurring space between the ankle and heel bone, once the joints are properly realigned. The normal amount of motion is restored. HyProCure offers the best anatomic design and bio- mechanical function. Before After Before After

Will I feel the device in my foot?Frequenty Asked Questions: You should not be able to feel the device after the procedure. Sometimes, for the first few months, a hard substance may be felt in the area of the surgery. This is scar tissue and should dissipate over time. Will there be a visible scar?How do I know if I am a candidate for this procedure? The incision is rather small and located below the outer ankle bone. This part of the skin heals remarkably well.There must be a flexible deformity. If the hindfoot can be manually positioned back to its normal alignment Depending on your skin type, your scar should continue to fade and in some cases completely disappears.then this should work, however, an examination by a foot specialist is required. After the HyProCure procedure, will I need to be on antibiotics prior to dental treatmentAre there any limitations, as far as sports go, after this procedure? or other future surgical procedures?Once the tissues surrounding the device are healed, there should be no limitation. The abnormal motion is Due to the size, position and location of the HyProCure device in the foot, there is no need to premedicate priorno longer present and normal motion will occur. Usually, there is a significant improvement in walking, to dental or other surgical procedures.running and related activities. Can I still get MRIs, CT scans, etc. with the device in my foot?What are the chances of getting an allergic reaction to this device? Yes, titanium is not reactive to these imaging modalities, unlike stainless steel, though there may be a “star-burst”Titanium is the choice material to be used in the body since it is the least reactive. effect surrounding the device.Does the device set off the metal detector at the airport? Will this device get rid of all of the pains in my body?HyProCure is made of titanium and should not set off the metal detector at the airport. No one can predict the outcome of any surgical procedure, but it is a fact that this solution should improve your bodys alignment. As a result, reduction and relief of many pains caused by the foot imbalance will also be reducedShould I have this surgery even though I dont have any symptoms? or eliminated. However, it is possible that some of the joints and soft tissues in the body may have already sufferedIf a deformity is present, the sooner it is treated the less damage will occur. You dont want to wait for pain. irreversible wear and tear, and in those cases other treatments or procedures might be necessary. In either case,At that point, there may be irreversible damage. We dont wait until our car tires are worn to balance them. correcting the root of the problem is still essential to stopping any further damage and to allow for any additional therapies (if necessary) to be long lasting.Is there drilling or bone cutting involved in this procedure?The device is simply slid into the natural space inside the foot without any drilling or bone cutting involved. Will I still have to wear arch supports after the procedure?HyProCure is designed to maintain the natural space that already exists inside the foot, therefore no Arch supports have a hard time stabilizing the ankle bone on the heel bone and if that was the sole reason to wearinvasive force is needed to insert it. The threads on the device allow the tissues to hold HyProCure in place. the arch supports you shouldn’t need them anymore. On the other hand, there maybe other associated foot deformities that may require the use of arch supports.If this procedure is performed on a child, does it have to be replaced later in life?Most likely not, it is intended to last for life. What causes this condition? It is most commonly caused by hereditary or genetic factors.Do I need this procedure even if I have a mild case?That depends. If you have symptoms and other forms of conservative therapy, including arch supports, Are there limitations to this procedure?havent been able to provide you with relief, then this procedure may be helpful. Yes, every surgical procedure has its limitations. In severe cases of dislocation, other surgical procedures may be necessary to achieve optimal correction or possibly a combination of procedures.
