Assessment & treatment for the painful big toe - "Beyond bunions" by Mr Matthew Solan

 

Tutor:  Mr Matthew Solan FRCS (Tr & Orth)

 

Treating problematic toes is challenging. Pain and deformity give rise to shoe difficulties and reduced activity. Less well appreciated are the secondary consequences for the whole foot and ankle. Biomechanical principles and understanding the influence of the knee and ankle upon foot problems affords opportunities for non-operative treatment. The same factors underpin the rational choice of surgery and aftercare.

This session will explore treating problematic toes, its consequences for the whole foot & ankle and non-operative as well as operative treatments and how to maximise the chances of rapid recovery, return to activity. Followed by Q&A.

Matthew Solan qualified in 1992 from St Thomas' Hospital, London before training in centres across London, Oxford, Dublin and Baltimore in the US. Since 2003, he has worked as an NHS Consultant at Frimley Park and Royal Surrey County hospitals.

As Program Director for Surgical Training in the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Deanery, Matthew Solan devotes considerable time and energy to teaching junior doctors. He has also had published many scientific articles on foot and ankle surgery and maintains an active research interest. He is Honorary Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at LSBU and secretary of the British Foot and Ankle Society Scientific Committee.

Matthew Solan is also a regular instructor at the famous Barouk Forefoot Surgery Faculty in Bordeaux, France, where he offers state-of-the-art surgical treatment for toe complaints. He has pioneered the use of minimally invasive gastrocnemius muscle release and shockwave therapy for chronic heel pain.
