Partial Amputations of the Foot

Partial amputations of the foot include:  toe amputation; mid foot amputation (metatarosphalangeal, transmetatarsal); Lisfranc amputation; and Chopart amputation.

Prosthetic options include: no prosthesis; rigid footplate with arch support combined with a rocker bottom shoe sole; custom-molded foot orthosis/ prosthesis; custom-molded shoes; modified ankle-foot orthosis with a toe filler; foot prosthesis (a custom-molded socket attached to a semi-rigid foot plate with a toe filler).
 
Surgical revision is sometimes necessary in order for the person to successfully wear a prosthesis.
