The Boesch technique(1,2) is a minimally-invasive and time-saving subcutaneous subcapital metatarsal osteotomy. Since 1984, we have been using this osteotomy technique for patients with a symptomatic tailor's bunion in whom conservative treatment has failed. This distal osteotomy is stabilized by a combination of a Kirschner wire and a special dressing. ...
