Ankle Fracture Surgery
This surgical procedure is used to correct a fracture of the fibula or tibia in the ankle joint. The procedure involves attachment of a fixation plate made of stainless steel or titanium to the fibula and use of screws or fixation plate on the tibia to stabilize the bones and allow healing.
Examples of conditions treated by a foot and ankle surgeon are:
- Sports injuries
- Trauma of the foot and ankle
- Reconstructive procedures
- Plantar fasciitis and heel spur syndrome
If you have pain in your foot or ankle or any of the conditions listed above, you should consult an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist.
