How does recovery compare to fusion?

With Cartiva, your foot will be weight bearing immediately following surgery. You should begin exercises that move your joint immediately. Your doctor may instruct you in the exercises to undertake in order to regain movement of your toe. Fusion normally takes 6 weeks before your foot will be weight bearing.
