Yoga Instructor is back on her Feet with the ToeMotion Total Toe!

Ruth is a dedicated Yoga instructor in Florida who injured her big toe almost 5 years ago. Her toe pain was so severe that it began affecting all of her favorite activities, especially Yoga. When the toe pain didn’t subside, she went to see a doctor who eventually put a screw into her big toe. After a short period of time, her pain returned. Ruth’s doctor recommended that she go see Dr. Thomas San Giovanni at Baptist Health in Coral Gables. She knew a toe fusion was out of the question as she wanted to return to teaching Yoga and would have a difficult time achieving that with a fusion. Ruth & Dr. San Giovanni agreed on a treatment; the ToeMOTION total toe implant surgery. Just 6 weeks after surgery, Ruth was back to Yoga and couldn’t be happiertoe joint replacement with her decision to get a ToeMOTION implant. The Arthrosurface ToeMOTION® System is the only total toe replacement that is implanted with screws on both sides of the joint to provide rock-solid fixation. Learn More… #stayactive #healthmatters
