Stop Dealing with Chronic Ankle Pain
Many people deal with chronic ankle pain on a regular basis due to injury or arthritis. In the past, the most commonly recommended solution was an ankle fusion. Unfortunately, this results in a complete loss of mobility in the ankle and can have negative effects on the joints in the body.
With major advances in medical technology, total ankle replacement is becoming an increasingly popular solution to reducing ankle pain while maintain mobility in the ankle. Instead of fusing the joint together, total ankle replacement replaces damaged portions of the joint with prosthetics, providing immediate pain relief.
What is a Total Ankle Replacement?
Total Ankle Replacement, also known as Total Ankle Arthoplasty (TAA) is a procedure often used in place of Ankle Fusions as it allows for increased ankle mobility after ankle surgery and carries fewer complications.
