More than 120 surgical methods for the correction of hallux valgus deformities have been reported. For the correction of moderate to severe hallux valgus deformities with aesthetic demands, minimally invasive surgery at the proximal area can be considered. This paper reports a case of moderate hallux valgus deformity treated by a minimally invasive proximal transverse metatarsal osteotomy followed by intramedullary plate fixation.
