See below the change in Manchester Oxford Scores after surgery by Mr Jowett between 2008 and 2023. A negative score is what we aim for and indicates an improvement in symptoms, the worst score possible is 100 and 0 is perfect so most people are likely to have a score before surgery of in excess of 50 and given there are 28 bones in the foot and therefore many joints, ligaments and tendons it is unlikely that anyone is going to score 0.
