NAOS Hemi Implant
The implant offers many benefits over newer, unproven implants designed for the metatarsal head. Multiple clinical
studies have shown the implant to be successful with no cartilage on the metatarsal head, countering the belief that
you must treat the side of the joint with visible cartilage damage. The base of the phalanx is subject to much lower
forces than the metatarsal head (which can be subject to six times body weight when weight bearing). Additionally,
the NAOS First MPJ Hemi Implant surgical procedure can be combined with distal metatarsal osteotomies for the correction of accompanying pathologies.
The NAOS First MPJ Hemi Implant is simple to implant, removes the minimum amount of bone possible, and preserves
the anatomy of the first toe. The NAOS implant is an excellent alternative to fusion, offering patients pain
relief and restored range of motion.
