Ankle replacement surgery is a procedure that is commonly performed to treat severe pain and disability in the ankle joint. The surgery involves removing damaged or diseased bone and cartilage from the ankle joint and replacing it with an artificial implant. The implant is designed to mimic the natural structure and function of the ankle joint, allowing patients to regain mobility and reduce pain.
Ankle replacement surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep during the procedure. The surgery usually takes 2–3 hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the case.
During the surgery, the surgeon will make an incision on the front of the ankle and remove the damaged bone and cartilage. They will then insert the artificial implant into the ankle joint, attaching it to the remaining healthy bone with screws or cement.
