The entire procedure was a little over an hour. My surgeon was Craig Radnay from the Insall Scott Kelly Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in NYC. Not sure yet how large the incision is as my foot is still wrapped until late Sunday. After the incision was made the bone spur on the top of my toe was shaved down and the area between the joint where there is no cartilage was also shave to make more room and reduce friction.
The Dr. says the procedure went well and I should now have 90 degree flex without pain when my recovery is complete (4-6 weeks). Mean while the first few days have been uncomfortable. I am taking pain meds and trying to rest. I will keep you up to date as I progress (mentally and physically). Peace
