Calcaneal osteotomies are useful procedures for the treatment of stage 2 adult-acquired flatfoot. Often combined with adjunctive soft-tissue procedures, the posterior calcaneal displacement osteotomy and Evans procedure provide effective realignment of pes planovalgus deformity. Preoperative evaluation, indications, contraindications, surgical considerations and techniques are discussed.
