Ankle Pain? It could be arthritis!

Person twisting ankle, ankle injury causing post-traumatic ankle arthritis.

Prior ankle injuries is the most common cause of ankle arthritis.

Do you have:

  • Swelling and pain in the ankle?
  • Joint stiffness?
  • Trouble bearing weight while walking?
  • A previous ankle fracture or any ankle injury?

70-75% of arthritic ankles that require ankle replacement surgery are post-traumatic in nature. Meaning, an ankle injury initially healed, but later developed into arthritis. Post-traumatic arthritis can develop decades after an injury, or even just a few years later. Ankle arthritis can also develop with the wear-and-tear of aging, particularly for females over the age of 55.

Total Ankle Replacement Surgery

Total ankle replacement, or total ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that replaces a deformed or arthritic ankle joint with a specialized metallic implant. Ankle replacements can help people who have had chronic ankle pain return to daily activities and experience less pain.
