What causes ankle pain?
The ankle joint takes in a lot of impact. It can wear away over time or can be damaged after an injury. When it is damaged, you may feel a lot of pain with every step. Usually, our doctors recommend physical therapy and other treatment first. But, when those don’t work, ankle replacement surgery may be an option.

During ankle replacement surgery, the surgeon removes the ends of the damaged bones and replaces them with a joint made of plastic and metal. After recovery and rehabilitation, this artificial joint will help you move freely without pain and return to the activities you enjoy.
