The article provides an overview of the surgical correction of moderate and severe Hallux valgus. Complications of the disease can be avoided by selecting a procedure that provides adequate correction of the intermetatarsal angle and ensuring proper balancing of the first metatarsophalangeal joint through lateral soft-tissue releases and medial joint plication. Arthrodesis should be considered if the likelihood of failure of a standard procedure is high.
