A new technique for interposition arthroplasty of the first metatarsoplalangeal joint is described. It involves minimal resection of the base of the proximal phalanx and the use of a fascia lata allograft. The method is simple, safe, and easily reproducible. In selected cases it can offer restoration of pain-free motion in a nonsalvable joint. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 98(2): 160–163, 2008)
