Ankle Surgery Menu

Why do I need ankle surgery?

Surgery may be required to correct a serious deformity of the ankle and its bone structure.

These issues may end to surgery down the road:

  • Injuries
  • Birth defects
  • ankle deformities

Symptoms that can cause foot and ankle pain creating problems with walking and pain in the future are:

  • Diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Neuromuscular conditions

Surgery often includes a procedure that realigns the existing deformity. Various kinds of internal and external fixation devices are often required either temporarily or permanently to maintain the foot or ankle in the appropriate alignment during the healing process.
