Ankle Reconstruction Surgery

Procedure

Reconstructive foot and ankle surgery seeks to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by injury, congenital abnormalities, infection, arthritis, and even improper, narrow footwear.

It also aims to restore or improve function and stability. Reconstructive surgical procedures are complex and can involve repairing or transferring tendons, implanting joints, removing tumors, and cutting, grafting, or fusing bone.

During reconstruction, internal and external fixation devices—including pins, screws, staples, and wires—as well as casts may be used for repair and stabilization.

Ilizarov Deformity Correction

Chronic malunion and malalignment of the tibia are often best addressed using techniques developed in Russia in the 1960s by Gavril Ilizarov. He pioneered the early science on distraction osteogenesis, which allows us to grow and lengthen bone by very gradual distraction. Small pins and wires are fixed through bone to external circular rings to allow for gradual deformity correction. These techniques allow us to lengthen shortened bones, correct severe bony malalignment, and fill in areas of traumatic bone loss.
