Ankle Replacement

Similar to replacements in the hip and knee, the purpose of a full Ankle Replacement Surgery is to remove arthritic portions of the ankle joint caused by disease or severe injury, and to implant a device that will help reduce pain and restore mobility to the ankle. During ankle replacement surgery, a portion of the tibia and the top of the talus are removed to allow space for the implant device to cover the bones. Then a plastic bearing is placed in-between the metal components to imitate the natural anatomy and motion of an ankle, allowing continued use of the joint.
