Midfoot arthritis with concomitant deformity can present a daunting reconstructive dilemma. Midfoot arthritis without other deformity can usually be treated with minor realignment at the tarsometatarsal joints.

These more severe deformities can require midfoot osteotomy and inclusion of other adjunct procedures to appropriately correct the alignment of the midfoot and hindfoot.
