Correction of deformity in the foot and ankle is particularly complex and must address the alignment of the foot, prior surgical interventions, arthrosis, neuropathy, musculotendinous abnormalities, instability, and skin ulceration. The goals are to provide a plantigrade foot that allows for shoewear and a stable platform for ambulation. In the past few years that have been significant advancements in the understanding and treatment of these conditions. This issue will provide the reader with a thorough review of all that is new on this interesting and difficult subject.
