Ankle Arthritis: causes, symptoms and treatment options

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.

  • Understanding the cause of your ankle arthritis and proper diagnosis can help your doctor to prescribe the best treatment for you.

  • No matter what the stage of your arthritis, our goal of treatment is to retain mobility in the joint and provide long-term pain relief.

  • Recommended treatment options for ankle arthritis depend on the severity of the arthritis and the overall patient. Read about them here.

  • Years of research of the complexities of the ankle joint led us to improved implants and materials. We're one of a few US centers with expertise in all types of Total Ankle Arthroplasty.
