Ankle Surgery

A common misconception many people suffering from ankle pain have is that – if they consult with a specialist – surgery will be recommended. This is not true because in most cases, a recommendation for ankle surgery is the last resort. There are many conservative treatments available at OCOrthopedic+ such as modifying footwear, ortho/inserts, bracing, boot, cast, physical therapy, injections, and medications.

Common Ankle Injuries and Conditions

Symptoms of ankle injuries/medical conditions include: pain, swelling, or mobility difficulty. Your ankles bear the weight of your entire body.

  • Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of one or more of the joints in the ankle. When this condition occurs, cartilage and bone break down, resulting in inflammation.
  • Sprained ankles occur when the ligaments that support the ankle become stretched or torn. This can occur as a result of twisting the ankle in a fall – or even stepping the wrong way.
  • Fractured ankles vary in severity. The ankle is made up of the tibia, fibula, and talus – which can all be fractured.
