"Very good doctor. He spent time with me to understand what the problem is, and found the root cause. Highly recommended."
The plantar plate is a thick ligament on the bottom of the foot between the base of the toe and the metatarsal that keeps the toe in joint. The plantar plate keeps the toe in line and prevents it from over extending or drifting. Plantar plate ruptures happen most commonly in the second toe.
