Medializing calcaneal osteotomy is one of the most common procedures in flat foot alignment. Recently it has been done percutaneously with several different techniques, most of them made in lateral position. Our paper aims to describe the minimally invasive calcaneal medializing osteotomy in ventral position, easier for x-ray control, faster to patient positioning with technical tips to more precise bone cut and reduction. Between April 2019 and September 2019, 10 patients were operated using this technique. Patients in ventral position, sciatic nerve block, percutaneous Achilles lengthening, transcutaneous k-wire passage for drill cut control. Straight calcaneal cut, reduction in medial and plantar position and control both in lateral and axil views. 15 patients were operated using this technique. 67% were woman. Median age were 38.9 years and median BMI was 23.5.
