Ankle Conditions: All about Ankle Arthritis

Dr. Baravarian discusses Ankle Arthritis, its causes and some of the advanced treatment options that are available to our patients.

Arthritis is a disease of the joints. It occurs when there's deterioration or destruction of cartilage. The cartilage prevents your bones from rubbing against each other and also absorbs forces from day-to-day living.

 

Our physicians are nationally recognized experts in the treatment of ankle arthritis and ankle replacement surgery.

This expertise, combined with constant research into new technologies, allows us to customize the very best treatment for each patient.

    The therapists are very knowledgeable. It was nice to see how they all helped out where needed. If someone started something, but was busy when a treatment ended, then someone else would finish up. A nice team effort.

    I recently saw Dr. Baravarian for an issue I was having with my tibia.  I was referred to him by my primary physician.  I am SO happy that I met him.  After a few office visits with him, and a very successful surgery,...

    As I waited in the sitting room for my 1:30 appointment, I was thinking about  how many stars to dock since it was now 3:00!!!  As it turns out, though, the problem was with my stupid health insurance, Anthem Blue Cro...
