What Is HyProCure

HyProCure is a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting a small, titanium stent to help align the bones of the heel and ankle. Misalignment of these bones is what causes hyperpronation (flat feet) and gait abnormalities that lead to foot pain and fatigue. At Table Mountain Foot & Ankle, Dr. Still is a certified surgeon for this procedure.

Ankle Bone Instability

By aligning the bones of the heel and ankle, the HyProCure procedure helps correct overpronation. This improves your child’s gait so that their feet propel naturally from heel to arch to toe. And when proper function is returned, it alleviates pain and other symptoms of flat feet.

While custom orthotics help alleviate symptoms, they cannot cure flat feet. Because HyProCure treats the underlying cause of hyperpronation, it offers a permanent solution to your child’s issue.

The procedure has proven amazingly effective since receiving FDA approval in 2004, with 94 percent of patients experiencing permanent correction. This includes children, who rarely need to have the stent replaced or removed in adulthood. For HyProCure success stories please visit Patient Succes Stories.

Signs Your Child May Have a Foot issue

Children exhibit common symptoms when there is a misalignment between the heel and ankle bones. These include:

  • Having flat feet (after age 5)
  • Avoiding normal physical activities, like playing sports or running on the playground
  • Experiencing leg pain at night and/or bedtime
  • Running more slowly or seeming less coordinated than their peers
  • Shoelaces becoming untied frequently (occurs due to the inward rolling of the foot that happens with hyperpronation)
  • Wanting to be held or carried more often than normal, especially after physical activity

If you notice one or more of these symptoms, call Dr. Still at Table Mountain Foot & Ankle.
