Specialization on foot and ankle

Dr. Kinast is focused on patients with foot and ankle diseases from Germany and abroad.

The fact that the big toe hurts now employs more than 10 million people affected – mostly women. Hallux valgus, also known as bunion toe pain, refers to the outward tilting of the big toe in the base joint. The associated metatarsal bone and the metatarsal head, the “ball of the toe” on the inside of the foot, are clearly protruding. Usually the consequence of high shoes. The problem is that, firstly, the entire body load is borne by the ball of the forefoot, which is five to seven times the body weight, and secondly, the entire rolling mechanism is altered, which again leads to the load on the metatarsophalangeal joints. Broken toes, foot deformities, joint wear and tear, shortened ligaments affect clinical pictures in the forefoot and ankle joint, in whose therapy and treatment Dr. Christian Kinast also specializes.

Dr. Kinast also uses minimally invasive foot surgery for treatment:

Patient and physician want to have minimal surgical risks during surgical procedures with small skin incisions. Arthroscopic foot and ankle surgery, in addition to the improved overview in the joint for the surgeon due to the aesthetically cosmetically advantageous scar, makes minimally invasive surgery popular with patients and surgeons alike. Decades of surgical experience are the prerequisite for success with minimally invasive and percutaneous surgical procedures.

Modern technology and innovative examination procedures

Modern EDP technology has made it possible to have immediate access to the digital images for over 10 years. The new three-dimensional volume tomography shows sectional images of 0.2 mm in standing position with only 10 % of the radiation exposure required up to now. For the first time, the complex anatomical structures of the foot and ankle joint can now be shown three-dimensionally under load.

Functional disorders of the gait can be demonstrated very well in high-resolution video pedography (4 sensors / cm2).

Poorly healing tendon problems can be treated well with growth factors from the patient’s own blood. From minimally invasive surgery to artificial joint replacement, from physiotherapy to orthopedic care – Dr. Kinast offers a comprehensive range of services from its network of experts to provide patients with optimal treatment from a single source with immediate exchange of information.
