How to Speed Up Your Cheilectomy Surgery Recovery

If you have arthritis in your big toe (scientifically known as hallux rigidus), one of the best ways to reduce your pain and improve your range of movement is to have a cheilectomy procedure. During a cheilectomy, your foot surgeon will remove the joint outgrowths and debris from your toe to alleviate your arthritic symptoms. What's great about this procedure is that it's a very quick surgery with little risk beyond the possibility of some stiffness.
