Total Ankle Replacement Surgery for Arthritis - Manipal Hospital

This video is an informative animated presentation explaining in detail about total ankle replacement surgery. If a person has severe arthritis in their ankles, a doctor may recommend ankle surgery in a surgical procedure called ankle arthroplasty or total ankle replacement. Overtime the articular cartilage can be worn, causing exposed bony surfaces to rub together creating bone spurs in the ankle for which sputum removal from the ankle bone is necessary. In addition, arthritis can lead to changes in the shape of the ankle bone of the joint. For example, bone projections called bone spurs may develop. Two types of arthritis that can affect the ankle joint and cause arthritis in the ankle are osteoarthritis
(due to joint wear in the lesion) and rheumatoid arthritis (one of several autoimmune disorders that causes inflammation in the joint). A surgical procedure called total ankle replacement is done to replace a severely damaged ankle joint. The surgeon will make an incision in the front of the damaged ankle to reveal the ankle joint. Watch the video to learn more about Total Ankle Replacement.
