Total Ankle Replacement

Restoring Form and Function, While Relieving Chronic Pain

Total ankle replacement is recommended for people who suffer disabling arthritis pain and experience no relief from conservative treatments. This surgery removes damaged portions of the arthritic ankle joint and replaces them with prostheses. Over time, the surrounding bone tissues grow around the implant to keep it from shifting.

Kayal Orthopaedic Center surgeon Dr. Chad Rappaport is board-certified in foot and ankle surgery. He uses advanced technology and state-of-the-art techniques to eliminate pain and help patients maximize their range of motion—unlike conventional ankle replacement surgery that tends to restrict movement. Ankle prosthetics like the INBONE® Total Ankle are designed to mimic the structure and movement of a natural ankle.

Total ankle replacement may not be a viable option for patients with severe deformities or poor blood circulation due to diabetes or nerve conditions, because an artificial joint requires a stable hindfoot in order to be successful.
