Treating Ankle Pain Caused by Degenerative Arthritis in the Ankle
Degenerative arthritis in the ankle causes pain, stiffness, dysfunction and disability to many patients. Previously, the only available treatment was ankle fusion - which resolves the pain but offers limited mobility. More recently, a newer treatment option has become available: total ankle replacement, which offers better mobility. The decision regarding which treatment is better for you should be discussed with your physician. Board certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons, Fort Lauderdale foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Robert Mills offers this video explanation.
