Ankle & Subtalar Arthroscopy

The ankle has many potential pain generators, I use patient history, physical exam and advanced imaging studies to determine what is contributing to your pain.  These are a sample of common procedures performed in the ankle to alleviate pain, instability and dysfunction:

 

  • Debridement, removal of bone spurs

  • Scar tissue excision

  • Os trigonum excision

  • Osteochondral defect repair

  • Tibiotalar (ankle) arthroscopic fusion

Benefits of arthroscopic over open knee surgery

  • Minimal scars

  • no overnight hospital stay

  • Decreased pain and swelling

  • Improved motion

  • Quicker functional recovery

  • Fewer risks and complications

Open Ankle/Foot Surgery

  • Lateral ankle ligament repair/reconstruction (Brostrom procedure)

  • Deltoid ligament repair

  • Osteochondral allograft transplantation

  • Autologous cartilage implantation

  • Achilles repair

  • Achilles debridement and Haglund excision

  • 5th metatarsal fracture (Jones fracture)

  • Great toe sesamoid injury (Turf toe)

Some ankle and foot pathology cannot be treated with arthroscopy alone and requires open surgery.  This is typical of ankle instability and some cartilage defects.  Ask Dr. Kimball what options are best for your ankle or foot.
