Peroneal Lengthening

? Why is this surgery reco?mmended?

  • When the peroneal muscle (muscle on the outside of the lower leg) is tight it pulls the foot outwards
  • This surgery is done to:
    • Improve positioning of the foot during walking
    • May be combined with a calcaneal lengthening to improve the foot alignment

What happens d??uring surgery?

Your child's surgeon will make a cut on the outside of the foot.

The tendon is then made longer so that it does not pull the foot outwards.
