The PODdoctors: Charcot Reconstruction using a Frame The PODdoctors with Dr. Dauphinee and Dr. Hussain

    • Medicine

Dr. Damien Dauphinee, a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon, and Dr. Raafae Hussain, fellowship trained foot and ankle surgeon, give an in depth look of charcot reconstruction. They first provide a recap of what charcot is and why it’s such an issue for diabetic patients. As they walk through the surgery procedure, they share the thinking process with each step.


 


“So just getting the heel into position is a huge part of this. So we’re really kind of yanking on that thing trying to pull it down back into at least a neutral position, if not, back to an anatomic position.” - Dr. Damien Dauphinee [06:38]


 


“It’ll be one giant platform that he’s standing on. The motion of mobility, he’s lost that. The motion of mobility has kind of led to the problem that he has, and we want to lock that up to make sure everything stays stable.” - Dr. Raafae Hussain [20:54]
