Freiberg's infraction is a relatively rare disease for which there is currently no consensus regarding surgical management. We present a case study describing a surgical procedure that uses a novel metatarsophalangeal hemi-implant. This procedure does not alter the metatarsal parabola, and it allows for other surgical procedures to be performed in the future.
