Discover how the Accu-Joint™ restores natural function and motion
Why you have foot pain
The big toe joint, also known as the first MTP joint, is critically important for maintaining an active lifestyle. The big toe absorbs an estimated one-third of body weight while standing, and forces of 2-3x your body weight during exercise.
Roughly 1 in 40 people over the age of 50 experience bunion deformity and arthritis which causes a reduction in MTP joint space and limits the ability to move the toes or bear body weight. Over time everyday foot function becomes severely limited and the pain can become debilitating.
Refuse to fuse!
Joint fusion is currently the most prevalent way to treat MTP joint disorders. But joint fusion is an irreversible and life-altering procedure that should only be used as a last resort. While joint fusion does reduce MTP joint pain, it also makes it impossible to bend your big toe.
Joint fusion Immobilizes the joint
Joint fusion is currently the most prevalent way to treat MTP joint disorders. But joint fusion is a life-altering procedure that should only be undertaken as a last resort.
- Immobilizes the joint and eliminates motion
- Weight-bearing after 6 weeks
- 6-8 weeks recovery
- Can result in pain in other parts of the foot

- It is designed to replace the cartilage in your joint so that the natural movement of your toe is preserved as opposed to having a fusion, which eliminates the ability of your toe to bend.
- The Accu-Joint™ is intended to be non-weight bearing and rely on the hard bone of your toe to support body weight, particularly during exercise when the weight of the body placed on your toes can double or even triple.
- The procedure is straightforward, usually takes less than an hour and patients are expected to begin putting weight on their toe soon after surgery.
