What is Ankle Replacement Surgery?
Ankle Replacement Surgery or Ankle Arthroplasty is performed when the ankle joint has been severely damaged and prosthetics are required.

How is Ankle Replacement Surgery Performed?

  • An incision is made in the front part of the ankle and the ankle joint is exposed.
  • The muscle tissues and blood vessels are moved to the side and then the damaged bones are removed.
  • After this, the tibia, fibula, and talus that stay in place are reshaped.
  • The prosthetic joint parts are then connected with the help of special glue that firmly holds them.
  • Screws may be attached to the fibula and tibia that help to hold the artificial ankle.
  • Then a bone graft is placed between the tops of the fibula and tibia, which provides more stability to the new ankle.
  • The muscles and blood vessels are then placed back to their original locations and the incision is closed with stitches.
  • A brace may be used keep the ankle rigid.

How to Prepare for the Surgery
