E.O.T.T.S. stands for extra-osseous talotarsal stabilization. This is a minimally invasive procedure where an FDA cleared titanium stent is placed into a naturally occurring space in between the ankle and heel bones. This space, called the sinus tarsi, should always be open. There is no drilling or cutting with this procedure. The ankle bone is re-positioned on the heel bone which re-opens the space. The space is then sized to determine which size stent stabilizes the ankle bone while still allowing the normal amount of hindfoot motion. The stent is held in place by the bony chamber and the soft tissues found in this space.
The EOTTS-HyProCure procedure is normally performed under a local anesthesia; some patients also prefer to have an IV sedation to completely relax them during this 20-minute procedure. One of the many advantages with this procedure is that it can be performed on both children and adults. Even when the HyProCure stent is placed into a child’s foot, it is unlikely that it will have to be replaced later in life. The good news is that the procedure is reversible if needed.

Misaligned ankle bones are responsible for the majority of chronic problems to the foot and ankle. This rather common condition also leads to a chain reaction of destructive forces acting on the knees, hips, and back.
This condition will not resolve on its own. Patients do not grow out of it and it cannot be properly treated with exercise or physical therapy. It is an anatomical, internal problem and only an internal solution can restore proper alignment. The secondary effects of misaligned feet include abnormal strain and pressure on joints, ligaments and bones throughout the body.
EOTTS-HyProCure® procedure can decrease the strain to your feet, knees, hips and back. Furthermore, this life-changing procedure will help you in so many other ways. For instance, now that your feet are realigned you will be able to walk easier without the limiting pain. This means you will be able to increase your metabolism and with a good, healthy diet you should lose weight. This will reverse the ill-effects of many associated condition of weight-gain like obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
HyProCure® is a titanium stent that is placed, through a minimally invasive procedure, into a naturally occurring space between the ankle and heel bones. It instantly realigns and stabilizes the hindfoot while allowing normal joint range of motion. The overall balance and alignment of the foot/ankle will be improved and the arch of the foot may appear more normal.
EOTTS-HyProCure® corrects this deformity at its root cause. It is an evidence-based procedure that has been performed on thousands of patients of all ages. When indicated, it is used by foot and ankle surgeons globally.
Typically, most patients after the HyProCure® procedure are back to normal walking within a few weeks. The bones, tendons and ligaments throughout the foot and the rest of the body will adapt to the corrected position over the following several months. The photos below show well-aligned foot after the HyProCure procedure. It stabilizes and correct your internal misaligned joint, therefore fix the underlying cause.
