Keeping feet fit for a lifetime is usually taken for granted by us. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee. The value of what we have is often not realized until it is lost. Among the various illnesses and injuries that can rob our feet of their full function is a potentially devastating injury that fractures the calcaneus. A person with a fractured calcaneus was once considered to be “doomed” for life as far as working while standing was concerned. However, with increasingly innovative restorative techniques, patients can expect it not to be so. Although we are far from restoring nature, we have come closer to it than ever before. A fractured calcaneus is a 3-dimensional jigsaw puzzle: putting the pieces back together without disrupting what circulation is left to these pieces and the surrounding soft tissues has been a challenge. Several articles in this and the next issue address this challenge, and we are fortunate to have Selene Parekh bring them to us as our Guest Editor. Other articles in this issue deal with innovative techniques in other areas of foot and ankle surgery, again aimed at restoring function and/or form to keep our feet fit and going for a lifetime.
