"Post fusion pain is treated with cell therapy now at the center for regenerative medicine," according to Doctor Farshchian, the medical director for the center for regenerative medicine.
The joint at the base of the big toe is called the metatarophalangeal joint, or MTP joint. This is the junction of small bone of the big toe and the long bone of the forefoot.
This joint is essential to the biomechanics of our feet, receiving much stress and prone to arthritis by itself. Pain around the base of the big toe is a common symptom of arthritis around this area.
This pain is exacerbated by activity. After the joint is fused by itself, the toe may not touch the ground, which may cause slight instability or imbalance when the patient walks.
