Doing What's Right

FOR OUR COMMUNITY 

We have established protocols for staff and physicians to ensure that our response is consistent with the standards of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local and state health departments. Many office visits can be done via Telemedicine.

Due to the increasingly stringent Shelter In Place orders, the need for determining true necessity for in-office visits is essential and required. Someone from your clinical team will contact you to determine your current needs.

Surgery on Your Ankle Can Improve Your Life

Our ankles consist of hard-working bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments that move up and down and side-to-side. These control how much pressure is placed on our feet when we walk or run.

When a bone is fractured, a ligament is torn, or an ankle joint is damaged, your mobility can be severely limited.  A turned ankle can even cause painful bunions on your big toes. Surgery performed by Dr. Ebert at our Austin, Texas surgical center can give you your mobility back by:

  • Relieving chronic foot pain
  • Improving walking and standing abilities
  • Eliminating the need for a cane, walker, wheelchair, or assistance
  • Allowing you to exercise again

Ankle Surgery Procedures

Arthroscopy

This minimally invasive surgery uses a small camera, inserted through an incision, to examine ankle joint and tissue damage caused by injury or arthritis. Fractures, infections, and tears can be treated through the incision, as well. Recovery from arthroscopy is quicker than more complex surgical treatments.

Ankle Joint Replacement

If an ankle joint has been severely damaged by arthritis, total joint replacement surgery may be needed. Dr. Ebert will work with our joint replacement specialists to create a personalized treatment plan that will get you back to normal as quickly as possible, once a high-tech prosthetic ankle joint is in place.

Ankle Fracture Surgery

A fractured ankle bone can be extremely painful and cause swelling, bruising, and mobility issues. Dr. Ebert will use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to locate your fractured bone and create a customized treatment plan to repair it with surgery.

What Is Ankle Surgery Recovery Like?

/

This depends on your procedure. For minimally invasive procedures, you may only experience swelling or pain that can be managed with ice packs and medication. More complex procedures may require the use of crutches and wearing a cast for several weeks. Dr. Ebert will discuss recovery instructions with you during your ankle surgery consultation.
