Ankle Replacement Surgery at Best Orthopaedic Surgery Hospitals in India

Published on

Ankle replacement surgery is performed to replace the damaged articular surfaces of the three bones of the ankle joint with artificial implants. This procedure is now being preferred to arthrodesis (fusion of the bones) because ankle replacement surgery restores range of motion to the joint. The surgery is normally offered to patients with arthritis who do not suffer from osteoporosis of the ankle.

Ankle replacement involves replacing the natural surfaces of the ankle joint which have degenerated with an artificial cover known as prosthesis. The ankle replacement has three components. Two of the components cover the joint and in the middle there is a third, mobile component. This allows for greater movement and reduces the stress between the bone and the implants. http://www.medworldindia.com/Orthopedicsurgery/AnkleReplacementSurgery.htm
