A new proximal osteotomy for hallux valgus correction, which has several advantages, is presented. These advantages include good stability; ease of rigid, two-point internal fixation; accurate, reproducible correction of the intermetatarsal angle; minimal shortening or elevation of the metatarsal; and early weightbearing. Preliminary results on 12 feet of 12 patients over a 3-year period have been encouraging and may indicate that this osteotomy is a viable alternative when considering proximal osteotomy for correction of hallux valgus.
