Abstract The etiology of hallux valgus, method of patient selection, technique of carrying out a modified McBride procedure, and possible surgical pitfalls associated with the procedure are discussed. The results of the McBride procedure and the limitations that the authors feel should be placed upon the procedure were stressed. The authors believe that the modified McBride procedures is biomechanically sound and offers patients a most satisfactory correction of their deformity. The procedure has a very low incidence or postoperative complications, and if a complication arises, the surgeon has many good alternatives with which to correct the problem.
