Ankle Replacement Surgery in Freehold, NJ, Can Help You Get Back on Your Feet
Ankle replacement surgery may be an option if severe ankle pain is limiting your ability to walk or perform other everyday activities. Recent advances in surgical techniques and implant design have made ankle replacement an effective alternative to traditional ankle fusion for certain individuals. This is promising because, although ankle fusion can relieve pain, it can also reduce range of motion and place extra stress on other joints, such as the knee. Foot and ankle surgery is a specialized field, and New Jersey Joints is pleased to have board-certified, fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeons on our team to help us provide comprehensive orthopedic care in Freehold, NJ.
Of course, the more experience a surgeon has in performing a surgical procedure, such as ankle replacement, the better the potential outcome. That’s because, with each procedure performed, a surgeon has an opportunity to further refine his or her expertise. The experience of the surgeons who practice at New Jersey Joints is unparalleled in the Freehold area.
To improve both function and quality of life, our team may recommend ankle replacement surgery to address:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Avascular necrosis
- Ankle instability
- Cartilage damage
- Other ankle injuries and conditions
At New Jersey Joints, each surgeon strictly adheres to a philosophy of being a doctor to patients first, and a surgeon second. In other words, before recommending surgery, we will thoroughly evaluate your case to ensure that we recommend what is best for you, and we recognize that this may extend well beyond performing surgery to address an anatomical condition.
The surgeons at New Jersey Joints are supported by an outstanding team of in-house physical therapists, many of whom have advanced training and experience in caring for patients after ankle replacement surgery. Working closely with our surgeons, these professionals can recommend exercises to improve your gait, perform manual techniques to strengthen your ankle joint, and provide specialized orthotics as needed.
