Darco MedSurg Post-Operative Shoe

The Darco MedSurg Post-Operative Shoe is the biggest improvement in post-operative protection since the introduction of the original semi-rigid post-op shoe in 1985. It is one of the most versatile shoes of its kind available on the market, with an ability to accommodate large bandages or dressings while providing the foot with solid protection. Perfect after foot surgery or for when K-wires are present, this advanced shoe features a square-toe design that provides additional protection for the toes.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Post-Operative Shoe

How Can the MedSurg Shoe Help Me?

 The MedSurg Shoe is designed to accommodate cast-set and bandaged feet following an operation or surgery. They are suitable for use in the following situations:

  • Accommodating a cast-set foot following surgery
  • Perfect for severely swollen feet, where standard footwear rubs
  • Providing a wide foot bed when K-wires (also known as pins) are present
  • Usable when large bandages or dressing are required

Key Features and Benefits 

  • Square toe design acts as a bumper to provide a more secure fit (especially when K-wires are present)
  • Adjustable strap around ankle prevents shoe slipping off at the heel
  • Rocker sole reduces forefoot and heel plantar pressure by over 25%
  • Grooved, non-slip outsole provides superior traction for stability on slippery/uneven terrain
  • The strapless forefoot closure eliminates buckle pressure on the foot
  • Can be used in conjunction with Lymphedema (chronic swelling) dressings
  • Accommodates wound dressings with a circumference of up to 43.2cm (17")
  • Removable insoles with over twice the padding for customisable support
  • Fully compatible with the Darco Peg Assist Insole for increased support

Can the Shoe Be Used With an Insole?

The Darco Boot features a fully removable insole which can be replaced with a Darco Peg Assist Insole to enhance comfort when required. The insole is ideal for significant pressure offloading at precise points of the foot.

Does the Post-Surgical Shoe Successfully Relieve Pressure?

The images below demonstrate the decrease in pressure to the forefoot area that can be attained by using the MedSurg Shoe.

Comfort and Protection

The excellent pressure relief qualities that this shoe can provide makes it an extremely comfortable and forgiving post-surgery aid. While the Rocker Sole reduces pressure on the heel and forefoot, the MetaShank protection allows for a high level of rigid control under the balls of the feet.

To ensure a perfect fit, the strapless closure can expand to 43.2cm (17") in circumference while eliminating buckle pressure on the forefoot.

Is the Post-Operative Shoe Adjustable?

To give bandaged or swollen feet the room needed, the MedSurg Shoe is adjustable for dressings up to 43.2cm (17") for customisable use based on personal preference. The fasteners allow the wearer to secure the shoe as loosely or firmly as they find comfortable.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.

Quick and easy
22 February 2024  |  Jacqueline

I ordered 2 of these shoes and they were delivered to me within 4 days. I have ordered a few times before and it is always easy and quick service. These shoes are very easy to adjust to accommodate dressings and to put on and remove.
