Ankle Arthritis

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.

Replacement Arthroplasty

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.
