The most common reason to consider an ankle replacement is post-traumatic arthritis.
Most patients report a previous injury or fracture many years prior. They may have initially recovered from the fracture but then developed increasing pain over time.
Common symptoms that bring people in for consideration of ankle replacement include stiffness, pain with weight-bearing activities, and sometimes instability of the joint.
Dr. Lane has been wonderful during my visits for my broken ankle. Very professional and thorough. I highly recommend him!
An ankle replacement often can improve the motion of the joint and dramatically relieve the pain. The surgery involves removing portions of the arthritic bone around the joint and resurfacing them with metal and plastic. Recovery involves a brief period of minimal weight bearing until all incisions are fully healed followed by physical therapy for strengthening and stretching.
The patient’s medical condition and ankle anatomy also determine if an ankle replacement is an option. Our Foot & Ankle Specialist can assess this and recommend other options, sometimes even less invasive if arthroplasty is not indicated.
