Patient Case History: Graham

Ankle Fusion and Simultaneous Lengthening of Tibia


Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
Graham injured his ankle in a rock-climbing accident. Despite initial surgery his ankle joint was destroyed.


His ankle was reconstructed with a fusion with a circular external fixator. However, bone loss led to shortening of his leg. Leg lengthening of 4 cm was performed just below the knee by adding a ring and the TSF.


His ankle and lengthening are fully healed and he is back to his active lifestyle.
