Ankle

TREATMENT_Ankle_Header

The ankle is a complex joint made up of the tibia, fibula and talus, which handles the stress of walking, running, jumping and other  everyday activities. Because of its frequent use, the ankle is susceptible to many different injuries and diseases that may develop as the result of wear-and-tear, a fall or from twisting or other abnormal movements.

Ankle surgery performed by experienced and highly trained surgeons at the DeClaire LaMacchia Orthopaedic Institute can help patients restore strength and stability to a damaged ankle joint. Many of these procedures can be performed with arthroscopy for less scarring, shorter hospital stays and a faster return to regular activity.
