Ankle Fusion

Ankle fusion or ankle arthrodesis is fusion of bones adjacent to the ankle joint, eliminating the joint completely. This is done when the ankle joint is damaged due to arthritis or injury.

Ankle fusion is either done by using a bone graft taken from other parts of the body or using surgical implants like plates, screws, wires, etc.

Eliminating the joint through ankle fusion also completely takes away the flexibility of the ankle joint. This makes the joint very stable. It also makes the joint pain-free.

Pain medications are given, and movement and weight-bearing precautions are advised post surgery. At one month patients can return to sedentary duty and full duty after five months.
