Recently I've had a few patients undergo a surgery called HyProCure. It essentially inserts a pin in the talus that limits pronation. I had never heard of this surgery before so I did a little research.
The HyProCure essentially works by an implant that fits into the talus/calcaneal space to prevent the abnormal motion(excessive pronation), but maintain the normal motion between these bones.
This is what the website states.
Minimally invasive/one small incision.
No casting required
Never has to be removed
Back in regular shoes in a week
Back to full athletic activity after healing
No need for physical therapy
I've had two patients undergo the procedure here in Grand Rapids. They had both ankles done. After the first ankle, there was a 3 week wait, then the other ankles was implanted.
They both have recovered nicely, and seem to be walking better. It's still hard to say about long term outcomes and results. I do know that they both have less pain in their feet and have recovered nicely.
Time will tell. Hopefully, this will give you some more info when you hear of this surgery as I believe it will become more and more popular. Here is their website.
