What Is Lesser MTP Joint Arthritis?

Please see foot & ankle anatomy for more information about the lesser MTP joints.

Arthritis is disease (damage) of cartilage. Cartilage lines the surface of the bones where two or more bones form a joint. Cartilage allows smooth and frictionless movements. Disease of cartilage leads to roughened surfaces which causes friction and increased wear and tear in the joint. This in turn can cause inflammation, pain, and joint deformity.
