A fracture (break) to this area of a 5th Metatarsal bone is known as a Jones fracture. Evidence based medicine suggests that Jones fractures be surgically repaired with a screw as pictured here. This procedure can often be performed percutaneously, through a small stab incision. Dr. Lehrman performed this procedure pictured here in 2012.
This bunionectomy was performed by Dr. Lehrman in 2012. The first photo shows the long bone behind the big toe crooked with a large bump on the side of the foot behind the big toe. The after photo shows how the long bone behind the big toe has been straightened and held in its corrected position with 2 small screws. The big toe joint is nice and straight and properly lined up in the after photo.
This ankle fracture repair was performed by Dr. Lehrman in 2011. On the before photo there is a crack in the fibula bone at the arrow. During surgery a screw (the one that looks like its pointing down) was placed through the crack and the plate was attached with more screws to the side of the fibula bone.
5th Metatarsal Fracture
This 5th metatarsal fracture repair was performed by Dr. Lehrman in 2011. In the before picture, the bone is broken and shifted (displaced). In the after picture the bone has been put back in the correct position and held in place with a plate and screws.
A Tailor bunion is when the long bone behind the baby toe is crooked creating a bump on the outside of the foot at the base of the baby toe. This is sometimes called a bunionette or a reverse bunion. In this surgery the crooked bone (5th metatarsal) was straightened so its not sticking out the side of the foot anymore.
Metatarsal bone behind the 4th toe, the 4th metatarsal is short, which causes the 4th toe to look short, sometimes sticking up in the air. The can be repaired with a surgery.
