Surgery is never the first option at Westchester Sport and Spine, but some conditions and injuries necessitate surgical intervention in order to help you get back to the activities you love without pain.

If you have experienced persistent ankle pain, stiffness, swelling, or a sudden injury, it is important to be seen by a professional orthopedic team to diagnose your problem and create a treatment plan.

Though knee and hip replacements are discussed more commonly, ankle surgeries or ankle joint replacements are an option available to patients who are suffering from pain due to bone deterioration or another injury. Ankle surgeries, including replacements, are successful procedures aimed at restoring function and comfort.

Some ankle surgeries are able to be done arthroscopically. This is a minimally invasive surgery that is performed with fiber-optic viewing camera and small surgical tools to operate in and around the ankle through small incisions. Ankle arthroscopy procedures give patients a faster and more comfortable recovery period with minimal scarring as opposed to open surgery.

Recovery from ankle surgery can take anywhere from 4 to 9 months, with recovery time depending heavily on how extensive the injury was prior to surgery, the complexity of the procedure, and how well the patient is able to limit their movement post-op.

Immediately after your procedure, you will be given pain killers to minimize any discomfort that you may feel. Following your release from the hospital, your Westchester Sport and Spine team will work with you to manage your pain and provide you with post-op care instructions.

After surgery, patients should be keeping their ankle elevated above the level of their heart and refrain from putting weight on your ankle, exercising, or moving your ankle prior to medical clearance.

Once a patient has completely recovered from their surgery, they will be able to once again enjoy everyday activities with no or reduced discomfort.
