Total Ankle Replacement (Arthroplasty)
Total ankle replacement, or total ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that replaces a deformed or arthritic ankle joint with a metal and plastic implant. Orthopedic surgeons perform a total ankle replacement to treat ankle arthritis. Ankle arthritis can be the result of the wear and tear of aging and can also arise from injuries like ankle fractures or a dislocation.
Why a Total Ankle Replacement?
Ankle replacements can help people with chronic foot and ankle pain preserve their range of motion and return to pain-free daily activities.
