Ankle Conditions: All about Ankle Arthritis

Updated 8/21/2018
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.
