Foot fracture

Navicular fracture


The navicular bone, which connects with the talus and makes up part of Chopart’s joint (midtarsal joint), joining the midfoot with the heel bones, plays a crucial role in the foot’s mobility. A navicular fracture therefore affects foot movement, which means it needs to be repaired with the highest level of precision possible. It generally occurs because of a fall associated with twisting of the foot.



A simple navicular fracture can be treated by cast immobilization followed by functional rehabilitation to limit the risk of complications. With more complex fractures, where surgical treatment is required, in most cases the bones are realigned and secured using high-precision, computer-assisted surgery to avoid negative after-effects and ensure success.
