The article discusses the application of Pirogoff amputation as a surgical technique for necrosis of the forefoot. It explores several procedures in conducting the surgical technique, which include identifying anesthetic considerations, osteotomy of the distal part of the tibia and the lateral and medial malleoli, and wound closure. It also discusses the postoperative management of the patient, wherein pain management and wound healing will be considered as main concerns during the early phase.
