Caption: Hallux rigidus before surgery. X-ray showing foot bones before surgery to correct a case of hallux rigidus, a stiff big toe. This is due to a bone spur on the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of the toe, but can also be due to arthritis. The surgery carried out was a right dorsal cheilectomy (to remove the bony lump) and a hemi-arthroplasty (repairing or replacing half the joint). The lump on the big toe can be seen as a bony protrusion (white) at upper left, at the joint where the 1st metatarsal and proximal phalanx meet. For the operation, see images C014/7778 to C014/7780.
