Placement of HyProCure

Interestingly, the insertion of HyProCure is considered a “soft-tissue” procedure because only the soft tissues are cut during the procedure. There is no drilling or bone surgery, the exception is when there a partial fusion between the ankle and heel bones that has to be removed.


Most HyProCure recipients have very little pain/soreness while others who have a lower threshold could experience a greater level of unpleasantness. It makes a big difference if the surgeon includes a small dose of a mild steroid combined with the local anesthesia before making the cut. You should stay off your foot as much as possible in the first 7 to 10 days.


HyProCure will realign the ankle bone all three cardinal planes (transverse, frontal, and sagittal). Once the ankle bone is placed back where it is supposed to be located, there will be many other positive findings.

Potential Risks

There are potential risks and less-than ideal situations from any surgical procedure. People have even been forced to have their toe amputated after an ingrown toenail removal. Once in a while, at no fault of the surgeon, the device, nor the HyProCure recipient a less-than-ideal situation arises. You need to understand the good, the bad, and the ugly of this procedure. Thank goodness the overwhelming majority of cases are good.

Potential Complications

HyProCure is a relatively simple and brief procedure of 20-minutes or less. In the very rare case, the procedure can be reversed with no long-term effects on the patient. As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks.
