Relief Options For Ankle Arthritis Pain Vary Among Individuals

Friday, April 10th, 2015

For many years, patients suffering from arthritic ankles and bone-on-bone pain had limited options: live with the pain, or have the bones fused. Relatively recent advancements in new technologies and surgical techniques have since opened up new options for treatment of osteoarthritis in ankles including the more traditional open ankle fusion (arthrodesis), arthroscopic ankle fusion, and joint replacement (also called total ankle replacement or TAR).

While choice of treatment options is encouraging, making a decision about which option to select is not always easy, and is usually affected by a patient’s personal circumstances.
