External fixation allows the progressive foot and ankle surgeon to approach Charcot foot and ankle deformities in a new way. Surgeons can now correct Charcot pathology with percutaneous techniques using a new generation of external fixation frames. These fixators allow the surgeon to adjust or manipulate the Charcot foot after surgery and the patient early weightbearing. External fixation provides the foot and ankle surgeon the opportunity to reconstruct and stabilize this destructive disease.
