Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
Claudia had ankle trauma that resulted in post-traumatic arthritis and varus deformity. She experienced pain and stiffness.
We performed a distal tibia and fibula osteotomy to correct the varus deformity ... and a simultaneous ankle distraction for the arthritis.
Two years later, she has minimal pain, good mobility ... and a much wider joint space on x-ray.
