Living with Ankle Arthritis? Discover the Benefits of Ankle Fusion!

Are you or someone you know struggling with the pain and limitations of ankle arthritis? You're not alone, and there's hope on the horizon! 🦶✨

🦶 What is Ankle Arthritis?

Ankle arthritis occurs when the cartilage in the ankle joint wears down, causing pain, swelling, and difficulty in movement. This can make everyday activities challenging and reduce your quality of life. 😔

🦶What is Ankle Fusion?

Ankle fusion, or arthrodesis, is a surgical procedure that involves fusing the bones of the ankle joint together. This helps eliminate pain by stopping the movement of the joint, providing a stable and strong foundation. 

Benefits of Ankle Fusion:

1. Pain Relief: Say goodbye to chronic pain! Ankle fusion can significantly reduce or eliminate pain, allowing you to enjoy life again. 

2. Improved Mobility: With a stable and strong ankle, you'll find it easier to walk, stand, and engage in daily activities. 

3. Increased Functionality: Regain the ability to perform tasks that were once difficult or impossible. 

4. Long-Lasting Results: Ankle fusion offers a durable solution, often lasting a lifetime without the need for further surgery. 

Is Ankle Fusion Right for You?

Consult with an orthopedic specialist to discuss your symptoms and explore if ankle fusion is the best option for your specific condition. Personalized medical advice is crucial! 🩺

We're here to help you step forward with confidence.

We are doing follow-up. Almost a year from the bunionectomies? Not even? We did both feet. 


We did the right foot and then we did the left foot. We did the bunion on this side as well as the bunionette on this side. Bunionette on the 5th. So we did a Peabody, reverse Peabody, minimally invasively, you see the scar is beautiful and then we see the scar over here, hardly any, this was from a recent injection. Excuse that.

So, range of motion is good, patient is active, able to go back to her activity.  Incision is right here, 

pin site is right here. As you can see there's no other bunions, Before she had a splay foot. 

So this splayed out. That's what before it looks like, it a splay foot so that's why we did the bunionectomy and the  reverse bunionectomy.

The minimally invasive gives you the benefit of no scars -- virtually no scars, no joint stiffness, and hardly any pain, recovery is relatively easy, am I correct? 


Good, good, relatively. 


It's still surgery. 

"Yeah, it's all good."

But overall it looks good, are you happy with it? 



Great results, awesome, less than a year for the other one, we're doing great. Back to work.
