Here is a patient of mine that has had multiple surgeries on his feet. Most recently we removed the 5th metatarsal head. However, the next option is to do a mid foot amputation as there is not any more bones to remove.
The challenge with his foo is he has a long 1st metatarsal bone compared to the others and he may develop another wound in this area as well.
