Although most practitioners are familiar with brachymetatarsia, it is a relatively uncommon clinical entity presenting for surgical correction. Traditional methods of surgical correction have been successful for the most part; however, a number of potentially devastating complications exist with these procedures. The authors present a review of the deformity, including the historical surgical techniques, and introduce a new surgical approach that minimizes the risk of complication.
