The Scarf osteotomy is a commonly performed operation for the correction of mild to moderate Hallux Valgus deformities. It is technically straight-forward and yields a stable metatarsal immediately suitable to partial weight-bear on with appropriate  post-operative shoe-wear.

It usually is performed together with a modified McBrides soft tissue release and on occasion with an Akin osteotomy to the proximal phalanx.
