Total ankle replacement can be a great treatment of end-stage ankle osteoarthritis. Ankle fusion was the gold standard for a long time. Fusing the ankle is still a great procedure with predictable results. Unfortunately, fusing the ankle eliminates a lot of motion and can wear out the surrounding joints. Ankle replacement has made great advancements in the past few decades. Current implants help alleviate pain while maintaining motion. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Daigre to see if an ankle replacement is the right procedure for you.
If you have a previous total ankle replacement that hurts, Dr. Daigre will assess your current ankle and make treatment recommendations. Whether it is nonoperative treatment or a full ankle replacement revision, Dr. Daigre will discuss with you the possibilities concerning your painful ankle replacement. There are great revision implant options for those who need a full revision.
