The replacement of a damaged ankle joint with an artificial implant is known as ankle replacement surgery.

The tibia (shinbone) meets the talus (foot bone) at the ankle joint, also known as the tibiotalar joint.

This joint, along with other joints in the foot, can be affected by arthritis. The smooth cartilage that covers the bones’ outside gradually deteriorates with use. Your joint may become painful, swollen, and inflamed as a result.

In order to get rid of the discomfort and swelling, ankle replacement surgery is a treatment to replace this injured joint. The surgery often happens while the patient is asleep. To access the troubled joint, your surgeon will create an incision in your ankle.

Ankle replacement surgery is typically recommended for people who have severe ankle arthritis that has not responded to other treatments such as medication, physical therapy, and bracing. Ankle arthritis can cause chronic pain, stiffness, and difficulty with movement, which can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.

Some specific indications for ankle replacement surgery include:

  1. Severe pain in the ankle joint that limits mobility and interferes with daily activities.
  2. Arthritis is not responsive to non-surgical treatments such as medication and physical therapy.
  3. Deformity or instability of the ankle joint cannot be corrected with other treatments.
  4. Previous ankle surgery has failed to alleviate pain and improve function.

An orthopedic surgeon will evaluate your specific condition and symptoms to determine if ankle replacement surgery is an appropriate treatment option for you. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with your surgeon before making a decision.

It is important to discuss these and other potential risks with your surgeon before deciding to undergo ankle replacement surgery. Your surgeon can help you understand the risks and benefits of the procedure and help you make an informed decision.
