Re: anyone ever have fusion of big toe (MTP) joint

Does anyone have any experience with an artificial joint for the big toe? That's what my doctor is recommending since I refused the option of fusion. I am under the impression that I'll be able to continue dancing about a month after the implant surgery. If you have an implant, how much mobility do you have in your toe?

A little bit about my toe trouble: There's no cartilage left in the joint. I had hallux rigidus (arthritis of the big toe joint with a bone spur). Seven months ago, I had a cheilectomy and osteotomy, (cleaning out of the joint and shortening of the big toe). But the bone has deteriorated, presumably due to arthritis.

If anyone is going through something similar, I'd be very interested to hear about it. Thanks!
