Abstract Arthritis of the tarsometatarsal joints is a challenging problem to treat. It can cause chronic foot pain and functional disability. We present a surgical technique for tarsometatarsal joint arthrodesis using a trephine to resect the articular surfaces and a dowel plug of an autogenous calcaneal graft with locking plate fixation. The procedure has been shown to result in osseous fusion, and it is technically relatively simple to complete. Copyright © 2014 American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Inc.
