Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an arthroscope, a small, soft, flexible tube with a light and video camera at the end, is inserted into the ankle joint to evaluate and treat a variety of conditions.
Achilles Tendon Repair
The Achilles tendon is often injured during sports activities, resulting in an inflammatory condition called tendonitis, which is characterized by swelling and pain. In some cases, severe injury results in a tear or rupture of the Achilles tendon, requiring immediate medical attention.
Ankle Ligament Reconstruction
Ankle ligament reconstruction may be performed arthroscopically under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make small incisions in your ankle. A tiny camera and a few special instruments are inserted through the incisions to repair and strengthen the ligaments.
Ankle Instability Surgery
Ankle instability is a chronic condition characterized by the recurrent slipping of the outer side of the ankle. Instability is generally noticed during movement of the ankle joint, but can also occur while standing.
Ankle Fracture Repair
Ankle fracture repair is a surgical procedure performed to treat a broken ankle. An ankle fracture occurs when one or more of the bones in the ankle joint, including the tibia (shinbone), fibula (smaller bone of the lower leg), and the talus (a bone in the foot), are fractured or broken. These fractures can range from relatively minor to severe, depending on the location and complexity of the injury.
