Ankle Replacement-Read below to learn more or watch the educational video.
A broken ankle or a fracture means one or more of the bones located in the ankle joint are broken. The bones can be broken in a number of different ways and depending on the severity of the fracture an ankle replacement might be recommended by your plano orthopedic surgeon.
An ankle replacement also known as an arthroplasty (joint replacement), is when the damaged ankle joint is replaced with an artificial implant. Ankle replacements are recommended for patients with advanced arthritis of the ankle, damaged ankle joint surfaces, or any other ankle condition that disrupts life’s daily activities. Ankle Replacements offer patients better mobility and movement outcomes of the joint compared to an ankle fusion.
