HyProCure is a minimally invasive procedure that will help with long term flexibility and the ability to bear weight properly in your feet. HyProCure is done by making a small incision in the foot or ankle that pushes a titanium stent in the natural space between the ankle bone and heel bone to prevent the ankle bone from rolling in. There is no screwing or drilling involved. This stops or decreases the abnormal, excessive motion.
