Total Ankle Replacement

Ankle joint replacement, also known as total ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pain and immobility due to severe end-stage arthritis that has not responded to non-surgical treatments. The goal of ankle joint replacement surgery is to eliminate your pain and increase the mobility of your ankle joint.

Ankle joint replacement is also recommended for the elderly with a severe fracture from osteoporosis, or presence of a tumor in the ankle joint.
