What is Ankle Arthritis?
Ankle Arthritis occurs when the ankle joint that connects the leg to the feet wears and tears the cartilage. Medicines, physical therapy, and other non-surgical treatment can treat mild symptoms. However, surgical treatment is unavoidable if the condition is severe.
Ankle replacement arthroplasty is a surgical procedure of replacing a damaged joint with an artificial joint to relieve pain while maintaining the ankle motion. The surgery helps the patient to feel less pain and function better during daily activity.
