Total ankle replacements are performed after trying a variety of non-surgical techniques to cure ankle pain. Trama, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis are a few of ailments for which people seek total ankle replacements.

During a total ankle replacement, the joint is replaced with a combination of metal and high grade plastic (polyethylene). Ankle replacements can offer patients increased mobility and movement as well as pain relief. 

Ankle replacement is most often recommended for patients with the following:

  • Advanced ankle arthritis
  • Destroyed ankle joint surfaces
  • An ankle condition that interferes with daily activities
