Ankle Replacement

Total ankle replacement surgery, or ankle arthroplasty, can relieve severe pain and restore movement for conditions caused by arthritis, sports-related injuries, or chronic injuries. It has become the preferred alternative to joint fusion procedures and offers excellent outcomes for patients in severe pain and suffering from immobility. Contact Ankle & Foot Specialists of St. Louis today to find out if you could benefit from ankle replacement surgery.

What to Expect from Foot and Ankle Surgery

Many foot and ankle surgeries can be performed in the doctor's office or a surgical center on an outpatient basis. After surgery, you may be required to immobilize your foot with one or more protective devices such as bandages, splints, surgical shoes, casts, or open sandals. You will need to elevate and ice the foot, keeping it dry for the first two weeks following surgery until sutures are removed. You will also need to limit any weight-bearing activities as instructed by your doctor.

Following any surgical procedure, we will continue to monitor your progress and recommend follow-up treatment, such as physical therapy, orthotic devices, and special footwear, to help facilitate the healing and recovery process.
