Is Ankle Pain Common?

Untreated Ankle Pain Can Lead to Serious Issues

Ankle Surgery Procedures
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.
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.
The Process Of Ankle Arthroscopy
