Scope It Out: Ankle Arthroscopy

Ankle arthroscopy is an advanced technique that allows surgeons to visualize and treat pathology within the ankle joint, utilizing a minimally invasive approach.  Patient who have suffered ankle sprains, ankle fractures, or who have ankle arthritis might benefit from ankle arthroscopy.  Synovitis is a condition of inflamed tissue and/or scar tissue within the ankle joint.  Ankle arthroscopy allows the surgeon to clean this tissue out of the joint and repair areas of damaged cartilage.  By utilizing this approach, not only does it minimize post-operative pain but it also minimizes recovery in many cases.  Average post-operative course will allow you to bear weight anywhere from 2-6 weeks after surgery depending on the condition being treated.  Talk to our experts at Indiana Podiatry Group for more information
