Foot & Ankle Care
Podiatrists and foot and ankle specialists perform a wide variety of complex foot and ankle procedures including the INBONE™ Total Ankle replacement. There are a number of conservative non-surgical treatments for ankle arthritis, such as pain medications, steroid injections, physical therapy, and orthotic shoes/inserts. Until recently, the surgical choice for disabling ankle arthritis was joint fusion or arthrodesis. However, fusion severely limits mobility and doesn’t always eliminate pain. Ankle Fusion can also stress other joints in the affected extremity. After the procedure, patients remain in the hospital for a few days and then go home with a splint. Physical therapy is also recommended following the replacement.
