Hallux valgus (HV) is a common forefoot condition and patients frequently present for surgical correction. Despite many years of collective surgical experience, a variety of first metatarsal osteotomies and techniques are available to the orthopedic surgeon with no consensus of a preferred technique. How does one navigate the field of differing osteotomies for HV? Are there some osteotomies with certain advantages over others? This paper seeks to answer these questions and will discuss the pathoanatomy of HV, the principles and objectives of surgical correction, and the osteotomies currently in popular use in orthopedic practice.
