Total Ankle Replacement System In Redding

Shasta Ortho’s Dr. Jason Nowak Among First Surgeons in the Nation to Use Cutting Edge New Total Ankle System

When he joined Shasta Orthopaedics in July of 2013, foot and ankle surgical specialist, Dr. Jason Nowak, began offering new innovative surgical and non-surgical techniques to North State patients. For patients suffering from advanced arthritis in the ankle, Dr. Nowak utilized the INBONE® II System – a total ankle replacement system that is effective thanks to its long stem design (inserted into the patient’s tibia) and also to its compatibility with PROPHECY® Pre-Operative Navigation Alignment technology. PROPHECY technology uses CT scans to create ankle alignment guides unique to each patient. These guides play an important role in the overall success of the ankle replacement procedure because they allow surgeons like Dr. Nowak to properly size, place and align ankle components during the surgery.
