What is Ankle Replacement Surgery?

Ankle Joint ReplacementAnkle Replacement is Surgery to replace the damaged parts of the three bones that make up the ankle joint. Artificial joint parts (prosthetics) are used to replace your own bones. Total ankle replacement is a procedure in which an injured ankle joint is replaced with a plastic and metal joint. They come in different sizes to fit different-size people. An ankle replacement surgery may be also termed as Ankle arthroplasty, Total ankle arthroplasty, Endoprosthetic ankle replacement, Ankle surgery.

Ankle Replacement Surgery Procedure

Ankle Replacement Surgery ProcedureAnkle replacement surgery may be done while you are under general anaesthesia (you will not be awake) or spinal anaesthesia where you will be awake but will not feel anything below your waist. If you have spinal anaesthesia, you will also be given medicine to help you relax during the operation.
Orthopaedic surgeon will make an incision (cut) in the front of your ankle to expose the ankle joint. Then he will gently push the tendons, nerves, and blood vessels to the side. After this:

  • The surgeon will remove the damaged bone.
  • The surgeon will reshape 3 of your bones that will remain in place:
    • The lower end of your shin bone (tibia)
    • The lower end of your smaller lower leg bone (fibula)
    • The top of your foot bone (talus) that the leg bones rest on
  • The parts of the new artificial joint are then attached. Special glue may be used to hold them in place. Often, screws are also placed through the two leg bones (fibula and tibia) to help support the artificial ankle.
  • A bone graft is created between the ends of the fibula and tibia. This makes your new ankle more stable.

After putting the tendons back into place, the surgeon closes the wound with sutures (stitches). You may need to wear a brace for a while to keep the ankle from moving.
