New lisfranc surgical plates

I am now 3 weeks post surgery and have been curious about the plate my surgeon put into my foot since most of the lisfranc surgery pictures on the web didn’t look at all like mine. Most of the pictures  I could find were of various horizontal plates and elongated screws placed at different angles.  I didn’t find any pictures with a square plate like mine. I also noted that  several lisfranc surgery pictures showed more than one incision on top of the foot.

Yesterday I found a manufacturer of the square plates and discovered this is a newer concept in lisfranc surgery.  Here is the the website in case you want to check it out:

I have only one incision on top of my foot and the plate my surgeon inserted will never have to be removed, so there will be no need for a second operation. I am very fortunate to not only have found my surgeon, but that he is on the cutting edge of lisfranc surgery.
