Ankle fusion is a type of surgery to fuse the bones of your ankle into one piece. Itís also known as ankle arthrodesis. The surgery is usually done to treat arthritis in the ankle. Arthritis can affect the joints in the foot. Over time, the smooth cartilage on the surface of the bones wears away. This results in pain, inflammation, and swelling in your joint. Ankle fusion is a surgery to fuse 2 or more bones in the ankle. This helps stop the pain and swelling. In this surgery an incision in made on the ankle to work on the joint. The orthopaedic surgeon then compresses the bones together and attach them with plates, nails, screws, or other hardware. A bone graft maybe used to help the bones heal together. A normal side effect from ankle fusion is a reduced range of motion in the joint.
In ankle replacement surgery, the ends of the damaged bones are removed and replaced with a joint made of plastic and metal. This artificial joint helps the ankle retain more movement, so there is less risk of arthritis developing in nearby joints. Ankle replacement tends to have more risks associated with it, however, than ankle fusion. And the results of this surgery may not last as long as ankle fusion for some people. But ankle replacement surgery does provide more mobility. Ankle Replacement is a good choice for some patients but this surgery is not available in India due to the non-availability of the Implant.
In general, ankle replacement is recommended for people older than 60 who donít participate in high-impact activities, such as running, and who are not overweight. The surgery may not be a good option if you have weakened ankle ligaments, misaligned ankle bones or nerve damage from diabetes or other medical conditions.
Ankle Fusion is the surgery which is being done at our hospital for Arthritis of the Ankle Joint. Ankle Replacement is not possible as the implant for this surgery is not available in India. In any case the results of Ankle Fusion Surgery are much better than Ankle Replacement Surgery however the motion of the ankle joint is slightly compromised. Since the complications in the replacement surgery are much more as compared to the fusion surgery, it is always the preferred choice for the doctors and the patients. The cost of ankle fusion surgery is Rs. 2-2.5 lacs with 3-4 days of hospital stay. Post discharge stay in Moradabad is 2 weeks during which the rehabilitation programme is started which is continued for 5-6 months even when you return to your city. Full recovery after this surgery may take upto 6 months if proper rehab is done. For query please whatsapp at +91-6396852220 or email at email@example.com
