During the period covered in this report, from 1917 to 1924, inclusive, about 300 operations for hallux valgus were performed at the New York Orthopedic Dispensary and Hospital. I have been able to review the results in 200 of these operations performed on 108 patients. The statistics in most instances refer to individual feet and not to the patient. The average length of time which elapsed between operation and final examination was twenty-eight months.
The work was done by twenty-five different surgeons, fifteen of whom were on the resident staff and ten on.the visiting staff. A little more than half of the operations were performed by the members of the visiting staff.
Ninety per cent of the patients were women, and 80 per cent were between the ages of 20 and 60. There were seven patients under 20 and three over 60 years of age.In those patients
