Total Ankle Replacement
For those struggling with ankle pain, it is important that you seek medical attention for a proper evaluation at Oregon Foot Clinic. Our specialists are highly trained and experienced in diagnosing and treating all facets of foot and ankle pain or injury. After a thorough examination, we can begin to craft a customized treatment plan that will take your unique needs and lifestyle into account.
Surgery is typically never the first line of treatment for most conditions, but in some cases it may be necessary once conservative methods have been exhausted. Our ultimate goal is to help relieve your pain, improve mobility, and help you get back to the activities you enjoy. If you are a candidate for surgery, we may recommend a total ankle replacement. This procedure is preferable when the goal of surgical treatment is to not only eliminate pain in the ankle, but also to preserve the mobility of the joint.
Like any surgery, total ankle replacement surgery can have risks involved such as infection, damage to blood vessels or nerves, and healing complications. However, these risks are relatively rare and do not often outweigh the benefits of surgery. During your consultation we will discuss your overall health, the potential risks of surgery, and whether you are a candidate for surgical intervention.
