This article reviews the indications and the operative technique for the medial calcaneal slide osteotomy for the treatment of posterior tibial insufficiency. Patient selection, expected results, and complications of this technique are discussed. When used in combination with flexor digitorum longus transfer, the medial calcaneal slide osteotomy is an effective method of treatment for the adult acquired flatfoot associated with insufficiency of the posterior tibial tendon.
