PRLog - May 11, 2012 - MACOMB, Mich. -- Macomb, MI – Andrew Levy, DPM and Master HyProCure® surgeon in Florida, recently had the opportunity to help a young patient stop suffering from the effects of talotarsal dislocation. “When I was walking there was pain and sometimes when I ran it was even worse,” said the energetic young singer.
Andrew Levy, DPM and his patient.
Talotarsal dislocation is a common foot imbalance that throws both the foot and the entire body out of alignment. It affects millions of people of all ages and can be the direct cause of many symptoms and secondary conditions, including overpronation, bunions, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, back pain, and even problems in the neck and shoulders.
After trying other conservative options with no end to her pain, Dr. Levy performed EOTTS with HyProCure®. “I had alien feet,” exclaimed the patient, but “now I feel like I have normal feet and I’m a normal person.” The young girl is walking normally and without pain, allowing her to return to favorite activities such as singing in her school chorus and shopping at the mall. She recommends the procedure to others, saying “it’s best to have the idea that your foot is going to be better and you will have less pain.”
HyProCure® has been used successfully since 2004 in more than 25 countries in patients of all ages and activity levels. HyProCure® is scientifically proven to restore normal foot biomechanics and significantly reduce strain to the soft tissues of the foot.
GraMedica® provides a revolutionary internal extra-osseous hindfoot stabilization device that is placed inside the foot via a minimally invasive out-patient procedure. The HyProCure® device instantly stabilizes the hindfoot bones, leading to reversal of the associated effects. HyProCure® represents a real solution for patients suffering from this condition (http://www.gramedica.com/
