The surgical treatment of PTTD has been well-discussed in the literature. The calcaneal displacement osteotomy is a powerful, yet relatively easy, procedure that accomplishes a significant amount of frontal plane correction in the surgical treatment of PTTD. It can be performed as a straight medialization osteotomy for moderate hindfoot valgus, and must be performed with a resectional wedge in the treatment of large valgus angles. To achieve optimal correction, it must be coupled with procedures that address the triplanar nature of the deformity. When used in combination with other reconstructive procedures, it provides a valuable alternative to other more joint-destructive procedures.
