Ankle Replacement Prime Treatment For Pain

Orthopedics This Week—October 30, 2014

To be eligible for the ankle replacement designed by Jonathan Deland, M.D. you must have suffered for some time with ankle pain, failed to improve with bracing or other treatments, be 50 years old or older and have good bone quality and foot alignment, according to a press release from Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS).

Ankle replacement is becoming a prime treatment for relief from pain, thanks to improvements in the design of the implant.

When speaking of the design of his newest implant Deland says, "It is designed to better reproduce the ankle's natural motion. It is also designed to be longer lasting. It has the proper curvatures like a normal ankle."
